Consultation on organ donation opt-out system

The Government has just announced their intention to launch a public consultation on increasing rates of organ donation. The proposals will include a new opt-out system for organ donation for England, similar to that already operating in Wales and under discussion in Scotland. The consultation will be launched by the end of the year and will focus on the following areas:

how government can increase rates of organ donation, particularly from black and minority ethnic (BAME) communities

how the issue of consent should be managed within the NHS what role technology could play in helping people to discuss their preferences with family

how opt-out could work in practice, what safeguards would be necessary, and how families could be supported
CMF plans to make a submission to the consultation - further details to follow
