Building on progress: where next for organ donation policy in the UK?

This report documents the changes that have taken place since the Organ Donation Taskforce published its report in January 2008.

It records the significant improvements that have been made to the infrastructure and the projected 34% increase in donation rates over the four years to April 2012. The report notes, however, that even if the Taskforce’s target of a 50% increase in donation rates by 2013 is achieved, people will still be dying unnecessarily while waiting for an organ.
