§ Mr. Ashley
To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will request regional health authorities to include the words, "Are you an organ donor?" on all hospital admission forms.
§ Mr. Freeman
No. The working party chaired by Sir Raymond Hoffenberg examined this suggestion and considered that it would increase the anxiety of patients entering hospital. It would be unlikely to increase substantially the availability of organs because most potential donors are unconcious on admission to hospital.
