Tell your family & friends

It's so important to tell those closest to you

It’s your decision to join the NHS Organ Donor Register, but it could also affect your family. If something were to happen to you unexpectedly, would those closest to you know what you’d want? Your family are TWICE as likely to support donating your organs, if they know it’s what you would have wanted.

Talk to your family and friends today and tell them that you want to be an organ donor. Find answers to some of the questions about the important role your family plays.

Think about those closest to you too, do you know their wishes? Asking them what they would like could be another good way to start the conversation.

Just pick your favourite image from our cast of characters, then get sharing on whichever social media you fancy.



It's a good idea to remind them too

Don’t forget to remind those closest to you every year, people are only human, they forget and situations change. If anything happens to you unexpectedly, at least you'll know that you'll have made it easier for your family because you'll have made your wishes clear to them.
