NHS Organ Donation: October 2019
What is changing?
From spring 2020, organ donation in England will move to an 'opt out' system. You may also hear it referred to as 'Max and Keira's Law'.
This means that all adults in England will be considered to have agreed to be an organ donor when they die unless they have recorded a decision not to donate or are in one of the excluded groups. (See the link below for further information.)
You still have a choice of whether you want to be an organ donor or not when you die.
Why is the law changing?
The law is being changed to help save and improve more lives. Every day across the UK, someone dies waiting for a transplant.
What do I have to do?
Everyone is being asked to:
- Record your organ donation decision on the NHS Organ Donor Register
- Tell your family and friends what you have decided
CLICK HERE for further information or to record your decision on the register and, just as important, discuss it with your family and friends.
