A significant proportion of people in England and Wales would wish to donate their organs after death for the purpose of transplantation. This guideline recognises the complexities that arise owing to the majority of potential organ donors lacking the capacity to be directly involved in decision making at the time of their death. This guideline seeks to promote the identification and fulfilment of these wishes through:
• more effective and expedient identification and referral of potential organ donors
• a more informed, considered and timely approach to consent for donation that is based primarily on identifying the wishes of the individual whenever known and however recorded.
