It's Organ Donation Awareness Week (2-8th September), and here at TSR we want to encourage everyone to discuss organ donation and what it means to them. With the change in the law happening next Spring to an opt-out system, you might have some questions about how Organ Donation works, and how the change might affect you and your family.

To find out more information about Organ Donation, please check out the NHS website with all the information and advice: https://www.organdonation.nhs.uk/
If you want some more information about the change in law, or to record your decision on the Organ Donation Register, visit https://bit.ly/2Z625Rw

TSR's threads on Organ Donation:

Let's Discuss: What does Organ Donation mean to you?

Organ Donation: What are my options, and how to I register to donate if I choose to?

Organ Donation Myths: What's the reality?

What's it like to receive a transplant? Hannah and Harpreet answer your questions!

Really pleased about the change- there is always a shortage of organs for transplant and you don’t need them when your dead.

I'm sorry, but in the matter of potentially saving lives your defense for not helping them is "it's my body" not when you're dead,

Choice to be selfish you mean? I'm sorry, but in the matter of potentially saving lives your defense for not helping them is "it's my body" not when you're dead, sweetie
Its not selfish to have a right over your own body.

If you're alive, yes. What good will that do when you're dead?? What is selfish is not giving up organs you literally do not need to help a sick human.
