Muslim Clinicians discuss Organ Donation as a form of Safaqah Jariyah
Law Change in the UK Regarding Organ Donation
“The Government has advised that it is unlikely that donation will proceed under deemed consent in England during the current COVID-19 pandemic because people are distanced and communication between relevant parties is more challenging. Therefore, while we continue to deal with COVID-19 within the NHS, where possible and supported by the local donor hospital, we will continue to approach families about donation and will do so with our usual empathy and sensitivity. Where there isn’t a recorded or known decision, we will support families to make a decision on behalf of their loved one”
– Professor John Forsythe, Medicial Director, Organ and Tissue Donation and Tansplantation, NHS.
