Order of St John UK Award Nobles Hospital – October 2018
We invited families of donors to get in touch if they would like to receive the award on behalf of their loved one.
The Order of St John UK Award for Organ Donation honours the incredible gift donors and their families in the UK make by donating their organs to save and improve the lives of others.
It is awarded by invitation to families whose loved one donated their organs, and posthumously honours the donor.
The family can choose to accept the award on the donor’s behalf – either at a regional ceremony, or in private.
About the award
The award was launched by the international humanitarian charity the Order of St John and NHS Blood and Transplant in 2013.
The award is open to people of all faiths or of no faith across the whole of the UK.
Families whose loved ones donated their organs before the award was set up in 2013, and who are interested in receiving the Award should contact the donor helpline on 0300 123 2323 or their local contact at NHS Blood and Transplant. For Isle of Man enquiries please contact email@example.com or in writing to Organ Donation Committee c/o Nobles Hospital
This award is for those who donated organs. Unfortunately tissue donation and eye-only donation are not recognised under this scheme.
The gifts of tissue donation and of eye donation are incredibly important in transforming the recipients’ lives but the Order of St John Award for Organ Donation was established to specifically to recognise solid organ donation.
