Organ donation is the gift of an organ to help someone who needs a transplant. Many organs can now be transplanted: kidneys, liver, heart, lungs, corneas, small bowel and pancreas. Living donors donate an organ or part of an organ during their lifetime. Deceased donors are individuals who donate organs after their death for the benefit of others. Many deceased donors donate more than one organ.
We are running a campaign to encourage people across Yorkshire to ‘Be a Hero’ and sign up to the organ donor register.
