I’m glad. I’ve considered being a donor for some time, but had an irrational fear that carrying the card might make doctors more inclined to save your organs than preserve what ever life might be left ( if god forbid in some sort of horrific accident).
(I know I know, utter nonsense!)
With this scheme we are all in from the get go. And as above, those against it are still free to opt out.
I would be interested to find out however, what criteria are required to be met before you can receive an organ. Is it a bit like IVF? You have to be young and otherwise fit?
I wouldn’t mind so much if they’d even given me the (dubious) choice of making my old address my default one but it’s not even visible on the site so I have no idea where they keep dredging it up from. They can obviously see it but I certainly can’t. It’s infuriating!!
