Help save someones life and sign up to the NHS organ donor register

Adding your name to the NHS Organ Donor Register is an important step and means that one day you may be able to save lives.

Today more than 9,000 people in the UK need an organ transplant that could save or dramatically improve their life. Most are waiting for a kidney, others for a heart, lung or liver transplant. But less than 3,000 transplants are carried out each year.

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 gift to others.

Come on everyone sign up it will only take you 2 minutes and you might save many other peoples lives

I already hold a card and donate blood, you never know when you might need it back....karma.

Not a deal. It's a personal choice - this should be in misc at best.

Not really in the right place, but a good thing none the less.

i wont sign up as i dont think ill die in the next 10years :P

depends on how you look at it, its a good deal if you happen to get a donation

seems to be a lot of negetive people about, I mean what use are your organs to u when your brown bread?

not really a deal

do you normally pay to donate your organs? lol

I support organ donation but it is a fact that you are less likely to be resuscitated if you are on the organ doner register and for that reason should anything happen to me, my next of kin already know my intentions in the result of an unsuccessful resuscitation attempt, I will not be having a doctor deciding whether I live or die for the benefit of harvesting my organs.

Wrong place for this type of promotion should be moved.............................(not a deal)

If you were not resuscitated you would die, your circulation would stop and your vital organs would be damaged and unsuitable for transplantation, so your theory makes no sense. Do you have a link to back up this fact?

What happens after they are taken out of your body. Theres no blood getting to them. So it wouldnt matter if your circulation had stopped or not. Im pretty sure its once your pronounced dead, they chop you up and put you in containers to be put into other people.

I hope you mean better as in healthier

well then people who offer to donate blood and organs are better

Thats a disgusting way to say things WHY! if a murderer donates their organs when they die are they better,

Is someone who goes out of their way to help people and does full time voluntary work but wont donate blood or their organs worse.

My dad used to donate blood until the people he gave it to well selling it privately for a huge payoff.
