"from spring 2020, everybody will be considered willing to donate their organs after they die unless they have recorded a decision not to do so or are in an excluded group"

Or when their family/relatives don't think so.


But a great improvement none the less.

I listen to the Today program every morning (wakes me up and usually stays with me until they close at 9am) and I regularly read the news on the BBC news app. Yet I did not know that this had come into law. I was aware it was being vaguely considered, but I would have thought that the fact that it was now going to happen would have been headline news. True, we would have got a mix of headlines varying from "Good Idea At Last" To Daily Mail type "Government About To Steal Your Organs When You Die" type paranoia. But I am amazed so little reportage.

As far as I know it's still not a law, just a conclusion from a consultation. I read somewhere this white paper will be discussed next year.

Although even at "conclusion" stage I am surprised that the Daily Mail hasn't run an article along the lines of "Government About To Steal Your Organs When You Die"!

Me too. Probably a Daily Mail owner knows someone on The List?
