BBC NEWS | Health | Most back opt-out organ donation
A quarter of the population is on the NHS Organ Donor Register.
A large majority of the population support the idea of presumed consent for organ donation, survey findings have suggested.
Two-thirds of more than 2,000 people surveyed by the British Medical Association said the UK should move to an opt-out system.
At present organs can only be taken from people who have actively chosen to be donors, and carry donor cards.
Every year hundreds of people die because of a shortage of donor organs.
