Presumed consent for organ donation back on track?

Last month, I blogged on how disappointed I was that the Assembly's Health Committee had rejected calls to introduce presumed consent for organ donation.

That's why I am delighted by today's news.

The Welsh Assembly Government, like the BMA, disagrees with the Committee and says that we should have the power to introduce presumed consent. The Health Minister, Edwina Hart had already made her personal views very clear that she supports presumed consent.

Given the Welsh Assembly's positive intervention it's clear that BMA Cymru Wales, Kidney Wales and the many other campaigners must now keep-up the pressure, muster public support and finally get the powers that Wales needs to save even more Welsh lives.
