More information - your choices explained

Everyone feels different about organ donation, but most people are aware of its life-saving importance.

Here’s where you can find out more, before making your choice.

Remember – whatever you decide, it’s crucial to make sure your wishes are known, so be sure to tell your loved ones. You can now choose to donate, choose not to donate, withdraw your details from the NHS Organ Donor Register, or update them.


Register to be a donor

If you want to join the millions of people who’ve already committed to helping others, then the NHS Organ Donor Register is the place where you can join and record your preferences, including which organs and tissue you would like to donate.

Yes I want to donate

Register not to be a donor

You can now choose not donate your organs and tissue. In order to make sure your decision is known, and upheld in the future, you should register your choice now. And if you change your mind at any point, you can always change your decision by updating your details.

No, I’d rather not donate

Update your registration

If your details (name, address etc) change, here’s where you can let us know. You can also change your donation preferences, for example, what organs you specifically do or don’t want to donate.

Update my details

Withdraw from the NHS Organ Donor Register

You can withdraw from the NHS Organ Donor Register at any time. This does however mean that your wishes will no longer be on record. So make sure that you inform your loved ones of your choices on organ donation. Or you can simply change and update your preferences instead – for example, what organs you specifically do or don’t want to donate.
