The Welsh Government had already made a big change to the organ donation process, but needed a bit more help.
The problem was, that even though people had either opted in or given deemed consent to donate their organs when they died, they hadn’t told their close relatives. Which meant that loved ones were overturning the decisions of people who may have wanted to donate their organs.
It may seem cold to use hard numbers when discussing people dying, but in this case the figures really add to the human story. Last year there were 21 cases where families over-rode the decision of the donor, or did not support deemed-consent for organ donation. An average of 3.1 organs per donor could have resulted in over 60 additional transplants.
