Organ and tissue donation
Your will is not the place to record your donation decision because the timeframe to donate organs is within hours of death. Some people also believe that ticking their driver's licence many years ago is still valid. This is no longer the case. The Australian Organ Donor Register is now the only place to record your donation decision.
Every year, the generosity of Queenslanders saves over 300 lives.
If you would accept a life-saving transplant to save your own or a loved one's life, please consider becoming an organ and tissue donor. You can register your wishes online in less than two minutes at the Australian Organ Donor Register [www.donatelife.gov.au]
