There is a shortage of people registered on the organ donor register. Although almost everybody would accept a donated organ if required, only 1/3 of the population has registered to donate an organ.

Since April 2015 114 people have made an organ donation. The problem is that 6965 patients needed an organ donation.

Please could I encourage our patients to visit or call 0300 1232323 to find out more about registering as an organ donor.

Thank you
