A new survey has found that almost 60% of people do not discuss organ donation with friends and family.
This is an appalling figure as the waiting list for organs crossed 8,000 in the UK. The NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT), which is the organ donation foundation in the UK, has urged people to discuss donating organs with their family and friends.
A spokeswoman for the organization said that just about 28% of the people are on the NHS Organ Donor Register.
The NHSBT has asked people to register at organdonation.nhs.uk or call 0300 123 23 23.
