    Centralised Organ Donation Register

    Centralised Organ Donation Register The Department of Health set up the Centralised Organ Donation Register in 2008 to make it more convenient for prospective donors to voluntarily register their wish to donate organs after death, and for such wish to be more reliably recorded.

    The Register will enable medical personnel responsible for organ donation to know upon the patients' death about their wish to donate organs, and the bereaved family to acknowledge the deceased's wish to rekindle lives of other people.

    Information stored in the Register is treated with strict confidentiality. Only staff of the Department of Health responsible for managing the Register and Organ Donation Coordinators of the Hospital Authority can access its information.
