What is organ donation and transplantation?
Organ donation is giving an organ to someone else who needs a transplant. This donation will greatly enhance or save the life of the person who receives the transplanted organ. Organ donation is an amazingly generous act and saves thousands of lives in the UK every year.
器官捐赠是将器官捐赠给需要移植的其他人。 这项捐赠将大大改善或挽救接受移植器官的人的生命。 器官捐赠是一项非常慷慨的举动，每年可在英国挽救数千人的生命。
Can I donate anything whilst I am alive?
Most donated organs and tissues are from people who have died. However, it is also possible to donate a kidney or part of your liver as a living organ donor. Find out about becoming a living organ donor.
You can also donate bone and amniotic membrane (part of your placenta) as a living tissue donor. Learn more about living bone and amniotic membrane donation.
