Organ donation opt-out plan shelved in the UK

Health Secretary Andy Burnham yesterday shelved plans to introduce an organ donation opt-out system - saying it was not yet necessary to take such a radical measure.

by Bob Roberts

Gordon Brown (British Prime Minister) has backed a "presumed consent" system where doctors are allowed to take organs after a patient's death unless they have signed a declaration forbidding transplants. But Mr Burnham said the idea was on the "back burner" because other measures had increased the supply of donor organs.

He added: "It means we do not yet need to think about more radical options to boost donor rates." (Read the in-depth article by Health Secretary Burnham).

A publicity campaign has seen a million more people signing up as potential donors and 200 more donating organs.
