Do you wish to provide a better life for someone after you are no longer living? If so, one option is to donate your body organs.
Including instructions within your Will is only a backstop clause. If a person is serious about donating their organs the correct way to give authority is:
Registration can be done via the Organ Donation website (see below for details), or when updating your driving licence.
You can set out your wishes which commonly include the desire that your eyes are retained.
Right now nearly 8000 people in the UK need an organ transplant.

Medical research is where your body is given to the anatomy department of your local Medical School at the time of your death. Their students will then use your body for medical research and learning.
At the end of the time with them (you stipulate the maximum period of time that they can use your body in the initial contract that you make with them) you will be given a funeral service, usually paid for by the medical school, in thanks for your donation.
There are formalities required for donating your body for medical research. For example the University Hospital in North Staffordshire ask that a person wishing to donate their body completes a formal contract which has to be signed and witnessed.
Ideally the testator’s Will should also reflect the desire for their body to be given for medical research and the testator should have discussed their wishes with their family.
The contact details of our local hospital in North Staffordshire is listed on our links page.
