'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.

Practitioners from the British Medical Association (BMA), said that it was time for a 'serious debate' on organ donation.

"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.
