People can choose which organs and tissues they wish to donate and can change their mind at any time. If you have previously registered your wishes about donation with the NSW Roads and Traffic Authority (RTA) it is important to ensure you update your wishes. if they have changed. Having a conversation with your loved ones about your wishes regarding organ and tissue donation is vitally important, as they will be asked to give the final OK.
