Organ Donation Law Change 20/05/2020
Posted by: marcia - Posted on:
As of 20th May 2020 the Organ Donation Law in England has moved to an ‘opt out’ system. 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. Your family will still be approached and your faith, beliefs and culture will continue to be respected.
You still have a choice whether or not you wish to become a donor. To get more facts about organ donation telephone 03003032094 or email OptOutEnquiries@nhsbt.nhs.uk or register your decision on https://www.organdonation.nhs.uk/register-your-decision/.
