Resource description

According to NHS Blood and Transplant, there are over 10,000 people in the UK that are in need of an organ transplant, with many often waiting for years for an organ to become available. Looking at organ donation rates across 22 countries, Joan Costa Font and Caroline Rudisill have found that those countries that have ‘opt-out’ legislation have higher rates of organ donation. Moving to such a system in the UK would lead to health and quality of life benefits for both the organ recipient and for their families.
