Organ Donation law in England has changed
Organ donation in England has 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.
What do I have to do?
We are asking everyone to:
- Record your organ donation decision on the NHS Organ Donor Register
- Tell your family and friends what you have decided
