Voice of Scotland.John Forsythe John Forsythe (born January 29, 1918 in Penns Grove, New Jersey), is an American stage, television and character actor who starred in three television series that spanned three decades such as single playboy father Bentley Gregg in the 1950s sitcom, Bachelor Father , a surgeon and chairman of the Scottish Transplant Group, explains why it's important to register to become a donor because one day it could be you.
MORE than 7000 people are currently waiting for a transplant that could improve or even save their life.

With National Transplant Week in July highlighting the urgent need for more donors, there's never been a more important time to join the register.
If you sign up, one day you might save someone's life.
Over 15,000,000 - around 25 per cent of the British population - have joined the Organ Donor organ donor Transplantation A person/cadaver that donates his/her organ(s) to a recipient Register. But we need more - it's not enough, people are still dying.

Passive endorsement like this, where people support the concept but fail to sign up, remains one of the major challenges we face.
That's why the Scottish Government The Scottish Government (SG) (Scottish Gaelic: Riaghaltas na h-Alba) is the executive arm of government of Scotland. It was established in 1999 as the Scottish Executive is backing National Transplant Week and its drive to increase the numbers joining the NHS NHS
