Refuse to donate

No, I do not want to donate



We understand that the decision not to become an organ donor in the event of your death is a personal choice. We hope to provide you with all the necessary information to make the choice that is right for you.

More information about your choices

If you live in EnglandWales or Jersey, are not in a group excluded from opt out legislation and you have not registered an organ donation decision, it will be considered that you agree to be an organ donor. This is known as deemed consent.

If you do not want to donate your organs then you should register your decision to refuse to donate. Remember to speak to your family and loved ones about your decision.

In order to ensure that your decision is upheld in the event of your death NHSBT needs to record your decision on the NHS Organ Donor Register
