Heart Transplant Waiting List Doubles In 10 Years

Official figures now show that the waiting list for Heart Transplants in the U.K are at an all-time high, more than doubling over the last 10 years.

The supply of hearts from donations is no longer keeping up with the demand. Therefore, starting from next year, England will move to “opt-out” donation, which presumes consent unless otherwise stated. Wales adopted the system previously, with Scotland and Wales following suit in Autumn of 2020.
