National Transplant Week: Infographic Raises Awareness For Organ Donation

One donor can save the life of several people, restore the sight of two others and improve the quality of life of many more.

It’s National Transplant Week and NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) have launched a campaign to raise awareness for the blood and transplant service.

Transplants are one of the most miraculous achievements of modern medicine. But they depend entirely on the generosity of donors and their families who are willing to make this life-saving or life-enhancing gift to others.

One donor can save the life of several people, restore the sight of two others and improve the quality of life of many more.

The more people who pledge to donate their organs and tissue after their death, the more people stand to benefit. By choosing to join the NHS Organ Donor Register you could help to make sure life goes on for many others.

Joining the register records your agreement to the use of your organs and tissue for transplantation after your death.
