Health Secretary, Jeremy Hunt, has today launched a consultation into plans for an opt-out system, reflecting presumed consent to donate one's organs after death. This follows in the steps of Wales.
Currently, in England, people have to opt-in to donate their organs, including eyes, heart and kidneys.
Hunt said families should overcome the "fatal reluctance" to talk about organ donation.
The consultation will close on 6 March.
