Owls support Organ Donation Week

21 September 2021

We are proud to be supporting NHS Blood and Transplant's Organ Donation Week.

The campaign, which runs from Monday 20 September to Sunday 26 September, is inspiring families across the UK to have a conversation about organ donation.

Although the law around organ donation has changed to an opt out system in many parts of the UK, your family will still be consulted if organ donation is a possibility and clinicians will never proceed if your family or loved ones object.

Each year, hundreds of opportunities for transplants are missed because families aren't sure what to do.

However, 9 in 10 families support organ donation going ahead if they knew what their loved one wanted.

Whether you wish to become a donor or not, recording your decision on the Organ Donation Register and talking to your loved ones will ensure your wishes are known and understood.
