Bill to create UK's first opt-out system tabled in Wales

The Welsh Government has launched a new campaign to encourage people to have a "heart to heart" with their loved ones about organ donation.

The campaign comes as a new bill is tabled to introduce presumed consent in organ donation in Wales, however the government has warned that legislation alone will not result in a higher rate of organ donation.

In Wales, 237 people are currenlty waiting on a life saving transplant.
