Organ and tissue donation is an opt out system. This means when you die the law says your organs can be used for transplant unless you:
- opt out (say no to donation)
- are in a group the law does not apply to
Only 1% of people die in a way their organs and tissue can be used for transplant.
Medical staff will always ask your family first about your latest views. This is to make sure donation does not go ahead if you're against it.
There is a problem
