Stevenson Calls for Support for New Organ Donor Register Campaign

TV Advert Launched to Encourage People to Sign Up to the Life-Saving Register

SNP MSP Stewart Stevenson has called on constituents living in Banffshire & Buchan Coast to join the NHS Organ Donor Register following the launch of a new TV publicity campaign by NHS Scotland.

The ‘We Need Everybody’ campaign is seeking to highlight that anyone can be an organ donor, and that by having more people on the Register, more lives can be saved across the country.



Currently less than one percent of deaths in Scotland occur when the person is able to donate their organs, which is why it is vital that more people sign up to the NHS register.

Commenting, Stewart Stevenson MSP said,

“This is an important campaign – one which will help save lives in the North-east and across Scotland.

“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 and help save a life.”
