The best way to check whether you’re on the NHS Organ Donor Register is to call the NHSBT Donor Line on 0300 123 23 23. You will be asked to provide your full name and date of birth. If an entry is found your details will be checked and updated where necessary. If no entry is found, you will be given the option to register as an organ donor over the phone.
It’s a good idea to remind your family every year that you want to be an organ donor. That way, they can carry out your wishes and take comfort from knowing that it’s what you would have wanted. If your family know your wishes they are TWICE as likely to say yes to donating your organs. Why not let them know?
