DonateLife at LRH

One organ or tissue donor can transform the lives of 10 or more people.

The decision to become an organ and tissue donor is an important one.

If you’ve decided to become a donor, register your decision at the Australian Organ Donor Register.

More importantly, discuss your donation wishes with your family because should the situation arise, they’ll be asked to give the final OK.

Latrobe Regional Hospital’s Nurse Donation Specialist encourages you to have the chat that saves lives.

Many people don't realise that even if they have registered to be a donor, family consent will always be souught. Should the time come, the people closest to you will be asked to confirm your donation wishes.

It's important you discuss your decision with them.

If you’re still making up your mind, why not explore the DonateLife website. You’ll find the facts about organ and tissue donation.

Our Nurse Donation Specialist is available to discuss organ and tissue donation with you or your group and plays an important role in supporting people who have been donors or recipients.

You’ll even be able to read in the DonateLife Book of Life how organ and tissue donation has saved or changed the lives of real people.

Our tax time appeal for mums-to-be

Help us bring the next generation of Gippslanders into the world safely. Support our appeal to purchase a new ultrasound machine.

The latest ultrasound equipment will provide our obstetricians and midwives with superior imaging quality of an unborn baby to monitor their growth and health. If we can pick up on changes in a baby's development, we may be in a better position to prevent complications during birth.
