New organ opt out system in England starts on 20 May 2020

What is changing?

The law around organ donation is changing in England. This means that from 20 May 2020, all adults in England will be considered an organ donor when they die unless they had recorded a decision not to donate or are in one of the excluded groups.

This is commonly referred to as an ‘opt out’ system. You may also hear it referred to as ‘Max and Keira’s Law’.
