The vice president of the association said that in spite of much progress achieved over the past years, China should further promote organ donation to benefit more patients in the future.

However, medical ethicist Dr Piers Benn raised several issues arising from the Government legally changing all Britons to presumed organ "donors", saying that it may leave some people feeling "cheated" and "uncomfortable" with what has hitherto been treated as a "gift".

"It's still really important for all of us to have conversations with our loved ones about organ donation so our wishes can be met if the worst should happen". "Many more lives could be saved by telling their families they want to donate".

The new consent model will allow individuals to record "religious faith needs" on the NHS Organ Donor Register.

Khan's party says it has enough support to form Pakistan government
The notification of reserved seats will be issued after issuing notification of candidates declared successful on general seats. The cricketer-turned-politician in his post-poll speech on July 26, said that he wanted to improve ties with India.


"It can not be right that a shortage of donors means people from minority ethnic backgrounds wait longer for a transplant than others", Jackie Doyle-Price, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Mental Health and Inequalities, said.

But Mr Beggs warned that unless it is also extended here, Northern Ireland will soon be the only part of the United Kingdom without an opt-out system.

"The decision by the UK Government to introduce an opt-out system in England is therefore very welcome and I am sure it will save hundreds of lives every year".

Further, 21% of people who died on the organ donation waiting list in the United Kingdom a year ago were from a BAME background.

August Is Breastfeeding Awareness Month
It has set a national target of 15% in exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life. The observation came at a view-sharing meeting in conference hall of civil surgeon office.


In Wales, a system of presumed consent is in operation and Scotland has also published a plan for an opt-out donation system.

Currently, would-be donors must indicate their intentions on the NHS Organ Donor Register, or grieving families must make the decision if a patient's wish to donate is unknown.

'I want to encourage people who wish to give life in the event of their death to take the time to record their wishes and discuss it with their family.

Those who do want to opt out will be able to do so by using a National Health Service (NHS) app to be launched at the end of the year. "We need to address myths and misconceptions around donation, and we will only do this by having informed debate and dialogue, which I hope will be fostered by these proposals", she added.

Deputies looking for armed teen who held up boy's lemonade stand
Fox News reports that the suspect was described as "a black male teen wearing a camouflage hat and black shirt". Authorities believe the guy left a bicycle and walked from there to the lemonade stand .


Sally Johnson, director of organ donation and transplantation for NHS Blood and Transplant, said: "We're incredibly grateful to all the families in Tyne and Wear who have chosen to say "yes" to organ donation".
