Family refusal is the biggest obstacle to increasing the number of organs donated on the NHS every year, a health chief said.
Despite a record year for organ transplants, patients are still dying because potential candidates for donation are not registering.
These donations ensured that for the eighth year in succession, the number of people benefiting from an organ transplant increased.
But although we have seen year-on-year increases in activity, the UK can and must do more to save and improve lives through organ donation and transplantation, and family refusal is now our biggest problem.
