While some organs from adult donors can be transplanted to children, organs such as heart and lungs need to be matched on size.
This may mean babies and young children can have a prolonged wait for heart or lung transplants.
The arrangements for a viewing of a loved one’s body after donation are the same as after a death where donation doesn’t take place.
Organ and tissue donation doesn't stop people from having an open-casket funeral.
The family is then free to make whatever arrangements they feel appropriate or to follow your donation decision if you had made these known to them before your death. The donor is treated with the utmost care and respect during the removal of organs and/or tissue for donation.
Sadly, some will never receive that call to hospital for their transplant and will die due to a shortage of people willing to donate their organs.
Deciding to donate your organs is a generous and worthwhile decision that can save lives.
Around three people die every day across the United Kingdom in need of a life-saving organ transplant.
Only 1 in 100 people across the UK die in circumstances where their organs can be considered for transplantation.
This means every potential donor is of vital importance.
