Organ and Tissue Donation

Remember it is important to discuss your wishes to be a donor with your family and friends as organ and tissue donation will be discussed with them in the event of your death.

What organs can be donated? Kidneys, liver, lungs, heart, pancreas and the small bowel can be donated.

What tissues can be donated? Heart valves, eyes, bone, skin, and tendons can be donated.

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.
