Organ donation information

An organ transplant is an operation that removes an organ or tissue from one person and places it in another. Organ donation is when you allow your organs or tissues to be removed and given to someone else.

Most donated organs and tissues are from people who have died. Others get organs from living donors (e.g. Kidney donation) because of a shortage of organs. You can find out more about organ donation here
