Both Fellows and non-Fellows of the RSA are welcome to join us for an evening exploring the future of organ donation in Scotland.
The donating of organs to assist in the improvement or saving of another person’s life is often considered one of the most admirable steps someone can take, reflected in the broad support shown for the concept in most polling. However, Scotland faces a significant disparity in demand for organs and the quantity available, despite public support. Currently operating under an ‘opt-in’ framework, proposals were brought to the Scottish Parliament to change the system in order to address this disparity.
Join RSA Scotland and the Laboratory of Human Anatomy at the University of Glasgow for an evening exploring the background to this important and controversial issue; the international examples of different systems in action; and a look to what the future might hold.
The event will be followed by networking and drinks – booking is essential for what promises to be a stimulating evening of discussion and debate.
