Organ donors to be asked if they are religious

Organ donors to be asked if they are religious People who join the NHS's UK organ donation register are to be asked if they want their religious beliefs to be considered in the donation process.

The question aims to reassure people that donation can take place in line with their faith or beliefs.

It is hoped the measure can help to boost the low proportion of donors from black and Asian backgrounds.

Research has found religious and cultural beliefs are the main barrier to organ donation in these communities. BBC News
