Organ Donation (Isle of Man) Bill 2018

Closed 8 Jun 2018

Opened 29 Mar 2018

Overview

On the Island, approximately 12,600 island residents are registered on the UK NHS Organ Donor Register. Many people have made the generous gift of their organs and tissue to help someone else in the event of their death, but despite many people registering there is still a shortage of donors.

Why We Are Consulting

The proposed change is intended to help the system better reflect the position of the majority of people who would be happy to donate their organs and tissue when they die. It will also respect the decisions of those who do not wish to be donors.

What Happens Next

The consultation responses will inform the final version of the Bill to be discussed by Tynwald later in the year.
