Banff and Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson has called on his constituents to join the NHS Organ Donor Register following a new campaign.
Run by NHS Scotland the We Need Everybody campaign seeks to highlight that anyone can be a donor and that the more names that are on the register the more that can be saved.
Stewart Stevenson MSP said: “Signing up to the Organ Donor Register could not be easier – and I would encourage my constituents to spare the two minutes that it takes to sign up and join the 43% of Scots currently registered.
“The We Need Everybody campaign is about driving home the fact that everybody has it in them to save a life.
“The Organ Donor Register is a vital resource for our NHS – and with 540 people currently waiting for a life-saving transplant, it is as vital a time as ever to sign up.”
