As part of Organ Donation Week, Angela Richardson MP visited the Royal Surrey NHS Foundation Trust to meet with staff, former patients and people with experience of organ donation.
She also opened a new information wall outside the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), where family members of those in intensive care can read more about the equipment their loved ones will be depending on when they need it most.
Angela said: "It's not always something people want to think or talk about but it's important that everyone considers their wishes on organ donation. The law changed in 2019 to require people to opt-out of being a donor. But many families still aren't aware of their loved ones' wishes at the end of life stage and COVID-19 took attention away from the change in law.
"It is vital to have that conversation. When someone dies, there is often very little time for their organs to make a life-changing difference for many others. Organ rejection is increasingly rare with advances in medicine and organ donation a key plank of the NHS's life-saving work.
"So think about organ donation now - I'm registered with my decision; are you?"
