Consider organ donation, MHK urges

More Islanders will donate their organs if the system changes.

So says an MHK who has asked health chiefs to follow Wales and reverse the current practice in the Isle of Man.

As in England, Scotland and Northern Ireland, Nobe's Hospital operates an 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.

Garff member Martyn Perkins says reverting to that model will increase the number of donors locally.
