Welsh government’s opt out organ donor consultation

Families would have no legal right to stop dead relatives’ organs being used for transplant if the person has not opted out in advance, under a proposed Welsh law.
However, Health Minister Lesley Griffiths said she could not see a situation where doctors took organs without the permission of families.
Ministers are asking for views on plans for a "soft opt-out".
If it goes ahead, Wales would be the UK’s first country with the system.
Ms Griffiths said the lack of organs and tissues caused unnecessary deaths and suffering.
