Two organ donor application leaflets are shown in London to illustrate the current moves by the British Government to propose a way to tackle the current organ shortage, 16 January 2008. Under the suggested plans, 14 recommendations will be proposed to boost donation by 50 percent within five years, creating 24-hour organ retrieval teams and employing twice as many transplant coordinators but stopping short of the previously suggested idea of "presumed consent" rather than opting in to the system.
