The law regarding the Donor Register changed on 1 July 2020. In the new Donor Register, you will be able to state whether or not you wish your organs and body tissues to be given to a patient after your death. This could include your kidney, lungs or skin. If you do not register a choice, ‘No objections to organ donation’ will be noted next to your name in the Register. This means that your organs may be given to a patient after your death. You can change your choice at any time at www.donorregister.nl. If you have already entered your choice, you do not need to take any further action.
It is important to register your choice and discuss this with your partner or family. That way, they will know which choice you have registered in the Donor Register in the event of your death. That will make things easier for your partner, family or friend at the hospital.
