  • The law around organ donation is changing in England. This means that from around April 2020 all adults in England will be considered as an organ donor when they pass away unless they had opted out.

    Once at least 12 months after the law is passed, a public awareness campaign will be undertaken by the government. The exact date of implementation is still to be confirmed.
