The Organ and Tissue Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill, which passed the final stage of consideration in the Assembly today, will be known as ‘Dáithí’s Law’ in recognition of five-year-old Dáithí Mac Gabhann.
Saturday 11 December is Organ Donation Discussion Day. A day which encourages everyone to think about organ donation, register a decision on the NHS Organ Donor Register, and to talk about that decision with loved ones.
On Monday 20 September the Minister for Health, Robin Swann, opened the debate in Stormont for the second reading of the “Organ and Tissue (Deemed Consent) Bill”. The session concluded with the Assembly passing a milestone vote allowing the law to move into the next phase of the legislative process.
