Human Transplantation (Wales) Act 2013
The Act sets out the legal framework for consent to the donation of organs and tissues in Wales for transplantation. It introduces a soft opt-out system for deceased organ and tissue donation.
A soft opt-out system is one where consent to the removal and use of organs and tissues for transplantation is deemed as having been given unless the deceased objected during their lifetime, and where the next of kin will be involved in the decision-making process.
By increasing the number of organs and tissues available for transplant. the Act will reduce the number of people dying whilst waiting for a suitable organ and improve the lives of others. Evidence suggests donation rates could increase by 25-30% under an opt-out system.
Full details of the Act are available from the National Assembly for Wales (external website).
