Join organ donor register - and save lives in Wigan

Figures from NHS Blood and Transplant show there were around 3,000 lifesaving transplants that didn't go ahead past year, because families refused to let their loved ones' organs be donated.

In Maidstone, 10 people have died while on the waiting list in the past five years, and seven received a transplant in 2017.

Last year, 34 people in Wigan borough had their lives saved by a transplant, and a total of 254 across Greater Manchester.

Despite the fact more people are supporting donating their loved one's organs, there is still a crucial need for more people to support donation.
