A NEW campaign has been launched to encourage people to sign up to the NHS Organ Donor Register.

The TV and radio campaign starts as the latest figures show that over 40 per cent of Scots have now joined the NHS Organ Donor Register – the highest percentage in the UK.

The campaign has been designed to get people talking about organ donation, to make their wishes known to their loved ones and to join the register.

Has your life been saved by an organ donor, or have you donated an organ to a loved one or friend? Contact the Herald on 0141 775 0040.

Join the NHS Organ Donor Register by visiting www.organdonationscotland.org or by texting LIFE TO 61611.
