You may recall earlier in the year we highlighted the changes to Organ Donation Law in England which took place on 20th May 2020. CLICK HERE to see the article.


Organ donation in England has now moved 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.

Your family will still be approached and your faith, beliefs and culture will continue to be respected.

You still have a choice about whether or not you wish to become a donor. Get the facts about organ donation to help you decide.

Why has the law changed?
The law has been 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
