Public debate on presumed consent ‘vital’ - Health News - News - icWales
Speaking during a Senedd short debate on presumed consent, Health Minister Edwina Hart said, “I think that we would all agree that transplants are one of the most miraculous achievements of modern medicine but, under the current system of organ donation, they depend entirely on the generosity of donors and their families in being willing to make this lifesaving or life-enhancing gift to others.
“It is important to acknowledge the generous gift that many families have given. Without that help many people would not have had a chance to live full and healthy lives.
“As a society, we must be grateful to those donors and families who have given consent."
