Organ donation law in England has changed


Get this information in another language

What is changing?

From 20 May 2020, organ donation in England 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 if you want to be an organ donor or not when you die.

Get the facts about organ donation to help you decide.
