Human Tissue Authority Consultation

22nd Jul 2019

The Human Tissue Authority  has launched a consultation on a revised Code of Practice F: Donation of solid organs and tissue for transplantation to reflect amendments to the Human Tissue Act 2004 as a result of the Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Act 2019.

The revised code will provide clinical advice and guidance for organ and tissue transplant professionals in England on how the new law will affect their practice from spring 2020. It also provides guidance in situations where someone’s consent to donate their organs is not clear or when clinical decisions are complex.

This consultation asks professionals working in the field of organ donation and transplantation for their views on the draft version, and will close  on 26 September 2019.

Information on how to respond is available on this page:
