Human Transplantation (Wales) Act
The Human Transplantation Wales Act received Royal Assent on 10 September 2013. This law will come fully into effect on 1st December 2015. Until then, the current opt-in system will remain in place.
The Act introduces a soft opt-out system for consent to deceased organ and tissue donation in Wales from 2015.
Organ Donation Wales
Organ Donation Wales (external link) launched on 1 December 2013. This website features the stories of families who have received and donated organs, as well as information about the changes to the law.
You do not need to make any decisions yet and a two year information campaign will now begin to ensure you are fully informed on what the changes will mean and the choices you can make. For now, we would encourage everyone to ensure that people close to them are aware of their wishes regarding donation.
The aim of the Act is to increase the number of organs and tissues available for transplant. This will benefit the people of Wales by reducing the number of people dying whilst waiting for a suitable organ to become available and improving the lives of others.
The Act and details of the legislative processes can be found on the National Assembly for Wales website (external link)
