Body Donation

We can appreciate that the thought of donating your body to medical science once you have passed is difficult to consider and discuss, however, please follow these links or read the attached information booklet if you feel you would like to register, or would like some more information.  If you feel body donation is the right decision for you and your family please complete the registration form (included in booklet) and send it to the London Anatomy Office, do not forget to notify your GP and add your wishes into your Will.

To register your body donation please post it to:

The London Anatomy Office
5.7, 5th Floor Hodgkin Building
King’s College London

Under the new law, in Spring 2020 those who do not wish to donate their organs will still be able to opt out via the register and by using the NHS app. Please click here for more information
