Organ Donation New Zealand

Public Service

Description

ODNZ's primary responsibility is to co-ordinate the donation of organs and tissues from deceased donors in New Zealand for transplant units in New Zealand - and sometimes Australia - and for tissue banks in New Zealand. The donor co-ordinators provide information and ongoing support for those families who have generously donated organs or tissues.

Organ Donation New Zealand works with health professionals throughout New Zealand to ensure there are nationally consistent and excellent processes for donation in New Zealand. We also provide education and training for health professionals, as well as providing information to the public.

Hours

For general enquiries about organ and tissue donation please call between 8am-4:30pm on 0800 4 DONOR.

For organ and tissue donation referrals, call the 24-hour service to talk to a donor co-ordinator on (09) 630 0935.

Referral Expectations

Organ Donation New Zealand considers all potential organ and tissue donors, and we welcome any referrals from members of the public and medical practitioners such as GPs.

People of all ages are considered for organ or tissue donation. Very few medical conditions, including many cancers, prevent a person from donating tissue for transplantation - for example eyes for corneal transplantation.

Please contact Organ Donation New Zealand and speak to one of our donor co-ordinators to find out more.
