Organ donation consultation - deadline 6th March 2018

February 8 2018
Organ donation consultation
Closes at 11.59pm on 6 March 2018
The government plans to change the organ donation system to an 'opt-out' system in England. They want to find out what people think of how the changes should be made. Please take this opportunity to have your say.

The Department of Health wants your views on the 'opt-out' system. These include questions on

  • the pros and cons
  • the impact on families,
  • religious and ethnic perspectives
  • automatic exemptions e.g. for children under 18
  • and they want to particularly hear from those awaiting a transplant or who are already a recipient.

The survey can be found here:

We understand the approach to be similar to the system in operation in Wales for the last 2 years.
