Organ and tissue donation at the Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust

Organ and tissue donation is an end of life care choice and therefore options should be explored and patient wishes respected. Patients and relatives should expect to be asked about donation as part of routine care here at the Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust.
