I welcome the announcement from the Scottish Government that it will introduce legislation for a ‘soft’ opt-out system of organ and tissue donation.

As I’ve said before, more people are requiring a transplant which means we require more people to add their name to the organ donation register. 

I look forward to hearing more details about the legislation and how it will help those requiring organ donation.
