An MHK wants to know the Manx Government's stance on opt-out organ donation.

Garff member Martyn Perkins is seeking information from the Health and Social Care Minister at this month's Tynwald sitting.

He wants to know what Kate Beecroft's Department's views on such a system would be.

Since 2015, patients in Wales have had to opt out if they don't want to be an organ donor, while France also recently introduced an opt-opt system, but Manx residents still have to register consent.
