Pass it On: communicating the law change in languages other than English
NHS Blood and Transplant is committed to ensuring that everyone has access to the information on the change in the law around organ donation that will come into effect in spring 2020.
It is vital that anybody living in England who is eligible to become an organ donor is made aware of the change in law, and is able to make a fully informed decision about their choices.
We have worked with stakeholders and government organisations to make information on the law change available in a range of languages including:
Bengali, Gujarati, Hindi, Punjabi, Tamil, Urdu, Arabic, Somali, Polish, Romanian, French, Cantonese, Mandarin, Hebrew and Yiddish.
