Manx residents encouraged to join organ donor register

Mon, 04 Sep 2017

The Department of Health and Social Care is encouraging Manx residents to register as organ donors.

Today is the start of Organ Donation Week - a national awareness campaign that aims to highlight the importance of organ donation and celebrate those who have been saved by donors.

The Island's Organ Donation Committee warns signing to donate organs on a Manx driving licence doesn't link to the UK register, but Manx residents can sign up to the register online.

There are currently nine people on the Isle of Man waiting for a transport, while six people have died while waiting for a transplant since 2013.

Almost 13,000 Isle of Man residents are signed on to the UK's organ donor register.
