Organ donor rule change explained by health minister

A campaign to make people aware of changes in the law affecting organ donation after death is being launched.

In two years Wales will become the first UK nation to introduce a system where people will be presumed to have agreed for their organs to be donated.

The Welsh government hopes that a change in the law will increase transplant rates by 25%.

Health Minister Mark Drakeford told Vaughan Roderick on BBC Radio Wales' Sunday Supplement that too many people die while waiting for a transplant.
