Organ donation: The conversation with families

Wales becomes the first UK country to introduce a soft opt-out system for organ donation from 1 December.

The assumption will be that people are willing to donate unless they actively opt out of the process.

The University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff is the only hospital in Wales where pancreas and kidney transplants will take place. Organs donated in Wales go into a wider UK pool.

Angharad Griffiths, specialist nurse for organ donation, is involved in liaising with families.

She explained to BBC Wales health correspondent Owain Clarke what her role involved.
