NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) officials have offered their "heartfelt thanks" to the families who donated their deceased loved one's organs and "helped transform the lives of others".
Sally Johnson, director of organ donation and transplantation at NHSBT, said.
Last year we set out our aspiration to match the best countries in the world for organ donation and transplantation, and if we are going to achieve this we will need to see a revolution in attitudes in society towards donation.
The increase in donors reflects increasing support in hospitals to refer potential donors to us and more families being approached, but there has been little change in our attitude to donation over the last few years. It's still not something we would all be proud to do.
