The Human Tissue Bill has now been published and is available on the Oireachtas website : Human Tissue Bill
Statement from the Irish Heart and Lung Transplant Association.
The Irish Heart and Lung Transplant Association warmly welcomes the publication of the Human Tissue Bill especially the provision for the introduction of a soft-opt organ donation consent system.

We have campaigned with other members organisations of the Irish Donor Network for an soft opt-out organ donation system and we look forward to the benefits this legislation will bring in time.

We urge the Government, Department of Health and the HSE to commit adequate resources and investment in infrastructure and personnel to ensure that organ donation and transplantation services in Ireland are maximised to their full potential.
