Public consultation on the introduction of a statutory opt-out system for organ donation in Northern Ireland

Organ donation is where a person, living or dead, donates their organs and tissues for transplant. A transplant can be life-saving, or improve the health and quality of life for patients suffering from chronic illness, and their families and carers, whilst also bringing great comfort to donors’ families.

A consultation document and questionnaire have been published by the Department of Health in order to consult the public about proposals to change the current system of consent for organ donation in Northern Ireland. The consultation seeks the public’s views on how to introduce an ‘opt-out’ framework for consent for organ donation in Northern Ireland.

Please read the Information Pack  and dates with registration links for the four public information sessions around the consultation.  We would encourage attendance at the events to find out more and to make a response.
