Welsh legislation

On 1 December 2015 the law will change in Wales to bring in a soft ’opt-out’ system for consent to organ donation. From that date, people living in Wales have three choices:

  • If you want to be a donor, you can either register to be donor (opt in) on the NHS Organ Donor Register or do nothing
  • If you do nothing, we will regard you as having no objection to donating your organ. This is called deemed consent.
  • If you do not want to be a donor, you can register not to be a donor (opt out) on the NHS Organ Donor Register

If you don't want to donate now, you can appoint a representative to make the decision for you after your death.
