Poll: do you think we should opt-in or opt-out of organ donation?

Health Secretary, Jeremy Hunt, has today launched a consultation into plans for an opt-out system, reflecting presumed consent to donate one's organs after death. This follows in the steps of Wales.

Currently, in England, people have to opt-in to donate their organs, including eyes, heart and kidneys.

Hunt said families should overcome the "fatal reluctance" to talk about organ donation.

The consultation will close on 6 March.
