A new helpline for families and friends affected by organ retention has opened.
The Alder Hey scandal sparked an inquiry and legislation
The line, run by the National Bereavement Partnership (NatBP), will be staffed by people with direct experience of the issue.
It follows a High Court ruling that the practice of removing organs after hospital post-mortem examinations without consent was unlawful.
More than 1,300 claimants can now seek damages if they can produce evidence that they suffered psychiatric injury.
Concerns over organ retention without consent first emerged at Bristol's Royal Infirmary and the Alder Hey Children's Hospital in Liverpool.
The new national helpline - 0117 955 4055 - will be funded by the Department of Health.
Michaela Willis, chief executive of NatBP, said: "This will provide essential information to any families affected by a post mortem and the possible retention of organs or tissues and advise them how they might take an inquiry forward with their local NHS trust."
The helpline will replace the one provided by the Retained Organs Commission, which finishes its work at the end of the month.
The commission has published its report detailing its
activities over the past three years and its recommendations and conclusions.
