NEWS: HEALTH SECRETARY CALLS FOR OPT OUT SYSTEM ON ORGAN DONATION

 

On December 12th 2017, the Government will launch a consultation on an organ donation opt-out system – a historic opportunity that could help transform thousands of lives on the waiting list.

The consultation on organ donation matters because…

  • Three people die every day waiting for an organ
  • 80% of people would be willing to donate their organs after they die,
    but only 36% register as an organ donor
  • In the proposed new system people won’t need to register as an organ donor, but the public need to share their views to help decide how the new system will work in practice

The government needs to hear as many views as possible from a diverse range of people.
