TODAY MARKS THE start of Organ Donation Awareness Week and we’re asking for your opinion on an opt out system being implemented in Ireland.
We currently use an ‘opt-in system’ which means that people have to express their consent before their organs can be donated.
Some countries in the EU have already brought in laws for an opt-out system, where patients would have to express their wishes not to donate. Otherwise, medical staff will presume they are donors.
We want to know: Do you think Ireland should have an opt out system for organ donation?
