Journal of Medical Ethics 45 (3):210-210 (2019)

Albertsen, in his recent article, offers an assessment of the recently introduced opt-out system for organ donation in Wales. However, he focuses on whether concerns raised prior to the enactment of the new system have been realised, rather than any positive impact on the number of actual donors. This side-lining of the main issue has resulted in a strangely positive portrayal of a system that has not yet yielded the results hoped for. Further, his failure to examine data over a number of years—instead opting for just 2—fails to even provide a fair assessment of the concerns he acknowledges.
