It's right we have a PUBLIC debate about presumed consent for organ donation

I very much welcome the announcement from the Health Minister about a series of public meetings on presumed consent for organ donation.

BMA Cymru Wales has always consistently called for an open and honest public debate on the issues surrounding presumed consent for organ donation.

And, just as we have always argued for a shake-up of the way organs are donated, we accept that if we are going to have such a fundamental change, then the public needs to be informed and engaged about the issues. That is why we welcome this series of public meetings and we urge doctors across Wales and the general public to have their say.
