On receipt of your story submission, the Organ and Tissue Authority will contact you to approve the designed layout of your story prior to publishing.

Helpful hints in preparing your story:

  • We encourage you to send a photo with your story, and that the photo is the highest resolution image available.
  • We ask that your story does not include surnames, dates of donation or transplantation or other identifying detail to maintain anonymity and confidentiality requirements.
  • Story submissions should be 350 words maximum (or 1500 characters).
