DonationConversation

It's time to talk about organ donation. DonationConversation is a campaign to get people sharing their organ donation wishes with their loved ones. Family support is needed in order for organ donation to go ahead. Many families say yes, but 4 in 10 say no to a relative becoming an organ donor.  You can make sure more lives are saved by having the conversation.

The UK has one of the lowest rates in Europe for families supporting organ donation. Since 2010 this has meant more than 1,200 people missing out on a potentially lifesaving transplant.

This campaign is aiming to increase the family consent rate from 57% to 80% by 2020, by asking everyone to “have the Donation Conversation”.

Are you on the Organ Donor register? Do your loved ones know your wishes to be an organ donor?


Organizer
