Support for Organ Donation

The Evening Times Campaign aims to persuade the Scottish Government to change the current system of organ donation to an opt out system.

Momentum is gathering in support of change in the law. Opt out is backed by the British Medical Association, British Heart Foundation and Kidney Research UK.
