Campaign hopes to recruit more organ donors

A new campaign is being launched today to raise awareness of the new laws on organ donation, that come into force in December 2015.

It's hoped it will encourage more people to sign up to the scheme.

In Wales, over 250 lives are 'on a clock' waiting for an organ donor, living in the hope that time does not run out for them and a donor is found. We are changing the law on organ donation in Wales to help people on the donor waiting list by increasing the number of organs available for transplant.

Today we are starting a simple yet very powerful campaign which will develop over the two years right up to and beyond the implementation date of the legislation on 1st December 2015.

– Mark Drakeford, Welsh Government Health Minister
