Mark Tami MP Says ‘Speak Out About Organ Donation’

Mark Tami MP, has backed proposals by NHS Blood and Transplant urging people to talk about their organ donation decision.

The Alyn and Deeside MP says: “Organ donation is a sensitive topic to talk about but it is important that relatives know their loved ones wishes so that if they are put in a position where they have to make a decision, they can do so with confidence.”

Statistics show that only 45% of families agree to organ donation going ahead if they are unaware of their loved one’s decision to be a donor.

Three people in the UK die a day in need of an organ transplant and around 10,000 people are currently in need of a lifesaving organ transplant.
