The Welsh Assembly Government or National Assembly must introduce legislation for presumed consent to increase organ donation.
This is of course a complex moral argument, but here in Wales we have not had a public debate about the viability of a presumed consent scheme.
Kidney Wales offers unequivocal support for a system of presumed consent and we are confident that such a debate will lead to the same acceptance of presumed consent in Wales as has happened in other European countries. We will support and work with any Member of the National Assembly for Wales or with the Welsh Assembly Government to bring forward the appropriate legislative framework to draw down to the National Assembly the power to determine how organ donation is facilitated in Wales. An informed discussion on presumed consent is needed in Welsh civil society as in other countries.
