Organ donation laws


How the law affects you

Organ donation laws vary across different countries in the United Kingdom (England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland) and the Crown dependencies of Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man. 

This page outlines the current legislative position for each of those areas, and the choices you can make.

Tell your family

Whatever laws are in place where you live, and whatever your own decision about organ donation, it is vital that you tell your family if you want to be an organ donor. 

Did you know?

Organ donation is always discussed with the family should donation be possible, so it’s important that your family know what you want.
