Organ donation law has now changed in England, what is your decision?

It is organ donor awareness week and the law has now changed to a opt out system that means everyone in Clacton on sea, Tendring and the rest of the England are now considered to be organ donors. It is still for you to decide whether or not you want to become an organ donor. Your family will always be asked to ultimately decide so if you organs are donated whatever you choose, it`s really important that you let them know.
If we all became organ donors none would go without. Organ donation is looking after all of us it is the same thinking as social distancing which is taking responsibility for others health and life in your hands and doing the right thing.
As the Clacton on sea beaches see more people coming back to enjoy the weather and sand those on the hospital wards continue as ever to watch from the side lines lacking the energy to go back to their normal lives. That is because they lack a organ that rarely come`s, that being all they wish for an end to their own personal waiting and uncertainty.
Though the stories of those human beings including children are largely unseen and far away we give it less urgent thought and put it to the back of our mind because it may not affect you directly. At this time when we are all looking out for each other for the greater good of everyone please consider being an organ donor and saving lives it is a responsibility the same.
