Spalding teaching assistant backs Max and Keira's Law in England
A Spalding teaching assistant in Spalding has welcomed a new law on organ donations that has come into effect this week.
Sam Newton (38), who had kidney and pancreas transplant in February 2014, described Max and Keira's Law as legislation that is "going to save an awful lot of lives".
The Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Act, which took effect on Wednesday, May 20, means that all adults in England are considered to having agreed to donate their organs when they die, unless they "opt out" by choosing not to or are in one of the "excluded groups".
