“An opt-out or presumed consent system for deceased organ donation would be preferable to the current opt-in regime in England.” Discuss.
As a starting point, you might wish to consider (briefly) why organ donation is important. For example, kidney transplantation has been a very effective therapy for people with kidney failure. Not only does kidney transplantation improve quality of life but it is also cost effective. It is estimated that following a kidney transplant overall savings (over ten years) will amount to £250,000.
Unfortunately the rate of procurement of deceased organs is particularly low in the UK compared with other European countries. You might wish to read “Taking organ transplantation to 2020” which outlines the main recommendations of the Organ Donation Task Force (2008). Some of these recommendations include early testing for brainstem death, increasing the number of transplant co-ordinators, high profile media campaigns and well-supported co-ordination initiatives between domestic and overseas centres to enhance successful organ retrieval and use.
