Organ Donation

We understand that needing to consider organ donation before and after death can be a very upsetting thing for relatives to think about so soon after a loved one has died. For some relatives, loved ones would have discussed their wishes for organ donation but some may not have.

If you are thinking about organ or tissue donation, there is some very useful information about organ donation on the following links:

If you would like further information specifically on tissue donation, please contact the NHS Blood and Transplant National Referral Centre:

Tel: 0800 432 0559.

This is a 24-hour service. When you call, please leave your name and full telephone number and a Specialist Nurse in Tissue Donation will return your call.

Alternatively, you may ask a doctor, a nurse or the Care After Death Team involved in the care of your loved one to contact the appropriate person on your behalf.
