    Organ Donor

    Would you take an organ if you needed one? Nearly everyone would. But only 28% of us have joined the Organ Donor Register.

    More than 10,000 people in the UK currently need a transplant. Of these, 1000 each year – that's three a day - will die waiting as there are not enough organs available.

    Please help us to turn people’s good intentions about organ donation into action by registering on the NHS Organ Donor Register.

     

    Blood Donor The Welsh Blood Service organises the collection, testing, processing and distribution of blood. We rely entirely on voluntary donors to maintain supplies to Welsh hospitals.

    We need to collect over 400 donations of blood everyday and demand has risen steadily over the last 10 years as medical techniques become evermore sophisticated.

    Anyone aged between 17 and 66, who weighs over 7st 12lbs (50kg), who is healthy and not subject to certain medical exclusions can volunteer to become a blood donor.

    In England or North Wales register with The National Blood Service
