The Donor Act changed on 1 July 2020. If you do not make a choice in the Donor registry, the following will automatically be put next to your name: ‘no objection to organ and tissue donation’. That means that following your death your organs can be donated to a patient recipient. The doctor in hospital will always discuss this with your family. If your family knows for sure and can explain to the doctor that you did not want to be a donor, you will not be a donor. That means it is very important that your partner and family know your choice. And even more important, that you enter this choice in the Registry.
