I’m really pleased that the Government has launched a consultation to look at moving to a system of ‘presumed consent’ for organ donation, which would see opting out of organ donation replacing opting in.

Figures released earlier this year show that hundreds of people died last year waiting for an organ transplant. This is a shocking figure and it is time for a change in the law.

There are too few registered organ donors and people are dying as a result.

Wales introduced an opt-out system for organ donation two years ago and since then the number of potential organ donors has almost trebled, and more than twenty European countries have opt-out systems.

The sooner we follow suit the sooner countless lives will be saved.

The consultation is open until 6 March 2018 and more details can be found here: https://engage.dh.gov.uk/organdonation/.
