'Opt-out system for organ donation needed' say leading doctors

Many leading doctors have said that an opt-out system for organ donation would better reflect the views of most Scots.

"All the time we waste now means that more lives will be lost. Now is the time for a serious debate about moving to opt-out."

– Doctor Sue Robertson, Renal physician

ITV have been running the 'From the Heart' campaign, which has been encouraging people to consider joining the organ donor register.
