On 20th May 2020, the law around organ donation in England changed and 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 whether or not you wish to become a donor; record your organ donation decision on the NHS Organ Donor Register
