Island will remain opt-in for organ donors

Should patients be automatically on the list?

There are no plans to introduce an opt-out system for organ donation in the Island.

However, health chiefs will continue to monitor best practice.

Minister Kate Beecroft told Tynwald today (Tue) that Noble's Hospital followed England, Scotland and Northern Ireland's opt-in system, which means a person must register their consent to donate organs when they die.

Since 2015, patients in Wales have had to opt out if they don't want to be an organ donor - meaning all patients are automatically place on the list.
