Electorate of Parkes residents can sign up as organ donors in record time
A new online registration process can assist residents of the Electorate of Parkes to sign up as organ donors in record time 
“A minute or two of your time could save lives and make a lifetime of difference for up to 10 people needing organ or tissue donation,” Member for Parkes, Mark Coulton said.
“Now, almost instantly, you can register to become a donor on a mobile phone, tablet or computer.”
Across the nation last year, 503 deceased and 267 living donors contributed to a record 1,713 people receiving donated organs.
Research shows that more than two-thirds of Australians are willing to become organ and tissue donors.
“But only one-third have taken the step of joining the Australian Organ Donor Register,” Mr Coulton said.
 “With around 1,400 Australians currently waiting for a transplant, I’m asking everyone in the Electorate of Parkes to join the register as soon as possible.
“Jump online, type in the words ‘donatelife’ and ‘register’, and sign up using the simple, five-line form. 
“And while you’re doing it, please share your decision with your loved ones.”
Along with the new online registration form at www.donatelife.gov.au, Australians can still join the Australian Organ Donor Register online via the myGov, Medicare Express Plus and Department of Human Services websites, and by submitting printed forms.

Key Points: INSTANT ORGAN DONOR REGISTRATION
• This online innovation means a minute of your time can help make a lifetime of difference to up to 10 people waiting for organ donation.
• Right now, around 1,400 Australians and their families are waiting for the gift of a life-saving transplant. 
• Last year a record 1,713 Australians received a life-saving transplant thanks to the generosity of 503 deceased and 267 living organ donors and their families.
• Now, thanks to this simple and fast new online system, you can register as a donor almost instantly – on your mobile phone, tablet or computer.
