Wales leading the UK on organ donation reform
WALES has taken another step towards becoming the first part of the UK to change the law on organ donation.
The Assembly Government is drafting a legislative competence order (LCO) to transfer powers to Wales to introduce a “soft” opt-out system.
If successful, this would allow the next Assembly Government to change the law.
In a written statement to the National Assembly, Mrs Hart said officials are making “good progress” on the LCO.
… Campaigners believe an opt out system will increase the number of organs for transplantation and prevent people dying while on the waiting list.
