Organ donation


In this section you can find out about the experience of organ donation and transplant by listening to people share their personal stories on film. Researchers travelled all around the UK to talk to 39 people, including donor families, living donors and recipients, in their own homes. Find out what people said about issues such as saying goodbye, donating a kidney and contact between donor families and transplant recipients. We hope you find the information helpful and reassuring.
