Organdonasjon

What will the doctors do if a donor has said yes to organ donation and the next-of-kin has said no

When donation is relevant, health personnel will always ask the next-of-kin if they know the deceased standpoint on donation. If the deceased has expressed a positive standpoint, whether orally or in writing, a donation can be carried out. The next-of-kin cannot overrule this.

If the relatives do not know the deceased’s attitude to donation but do not oppose it, donation may be carried out. In instances where the deceased was negative to it, organ donation would not carried out if the next-of-kin was positive to it.
