'Opt-out' plan for organ donation to be rolled out across England

  • An NHS Organ Donor Register card

An "opt-out" system for organ donation will be introduced in the United Kingdom in a move that should save hundreds of lives a year, the government will announce today.

The new law on organ donation will be called "Max's law" after Max Johnson, 10, of Winsford, Cheshire, who was saved by a heart transplant in August previous year.

It has been adopted to tackle donor shortages and is meant to shift the balance of presumption in favour of organ donation, the Department of Health and Social Care said.

It will replace the current plan, under which people must sign up to be a donor on the NHS Organ Donor Register.

Organ donation saves lives.

Currently, less than half of families give consent for their loved one's organs to be donated if they are unaware of their wishes.

'We believe that by making these changes, we can save as many as 700 more lives every year.

Organ donation is only possible in around 1 per cent of deaths and the number of people waiting for a suitable organ far outstrips the number donated organs available.

However, we know this new system alone is not a magic bullet. We need to address myths and misconceptions around donation, and we will only do this by having informed debate and dialogue, which I hope will be fostered by these proposals.

Children, people with limited mental capacity and others who have not lived in England for at least a year prior to their death will be exempt from the scheme.

The proposed new system is expected to come into effect in England in spring 2020 as part of a drive to help people waiting for a life-saving transplant.
