The NHS Organ Donor Register is a confidential national database that holds the details of around 21 million people who want to donate their organs after their death.
In the event of your death, there's a chance your organs could help save someone else's life.
TheNHS Organ Donation Register can be accessed by healthcare professionals to find out whether an individual has registered to be an organ donor.
If you want to be a donor, add your name to the register and tell those closest to you. This will make it easier for them to ensure donation goes ahead in the event of your death.
There are a number of ways you can join the register, including:
- completing an online form here
- calling the free NHS Donor Line on 0300 123 23 23 (lines are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year)
In the event of your death, the person closest to you (usually your next of kin) will be asked to confirm that you hadn't changed your mind before your death.
