I've just seen this. Announced on Olympics day, talk about a good day to bury news...
There are plans to discuss reforming the Organ Donation service on two counts.
The first, if you don't donate, you can't get one.
The second...and more worrying...
'The survey asks whether doctors should be able to keep alive patients with catastrophic brain damage, for example due to head injury or stroke, who
will not survive, solely for the purpose of organ donation.
'However, what is being considered is different. Known as elective ventilation, it involves starting ventilation once it is recognised that the
patient is close to death, with the specific intention of facilitating organ donation.'
Who's to say who's close to death? The government?
Will doctors be paid for this 'service'?
Not cool man, not cool.
Crichton's Coma anyone?
