Wales has led the way with organ donation by enacting new legislation. The ‘Family attitudes, actions, decisions and experiences following implementation of deemed consent and the Human Transplantation Act (Wales)’ is a study undertaken with families who were approached when their loved one was considered a potential organ donor in Wales. The study is led by Prof Jane Noyes at Bangor University and funded by Health and Care Research Wales under the remit of the Wales Kidney Research Unit.

The event celebrates the partnership with the many patient and public organisations who have enthusiastically supported the study, which is an example of a co-productive study leading to further research opportunities with NHSBT. The study provided opportunities for shared learning with NHS BT and Welsh Government of what works and what can be further strengthened so that organ donation becomes the norm in Wales.
