Organ Donation Act 2019 becomes law

April 9 2019
The Organ Donation Act - known as Max and Keira's law in honour of a boy who received a heart transplant and the girl who donated it - will mean adults in England will be considered potential donors unless they chose to opt out or are excluded.
With 80% of people in England supporting organ donation but only 38% having recorded their wishes, families are often left with a difficult decision when a loved one dies.
It’s important that everyone takes the time to discuss their choices on donation with their families and register their wishes, whatever their preference may be.
