The Member for Coffs Harbour, Andrew Fraser, is supporting the Minister for Health, Jillian Skinner, in her efforts to see the NSW organ donation rates match, and ultimately exceed, those achieved by other Australian states and territories.

“I would like to encourage residents in the Coffs Harbour electorate to give their support to this program, as one in six people who could have been saved by an organ donation die waiting for a suitable donor to become available.”

Key initiatives of the strategy include:Transferring existing donors from the state Roads and Maritime Services organ donor register to the national Australian Organ Donor Register run by Medicare;Increasing community education and awareness campaigns to encourage people to have discussions with their families about organ donation;Employing specialists in hospitals to help families deal with the difficult decision about consenting to donation;Providing guidelines for doctors to help them uphold a patient’s desire to be a donor; andPromoting living donation programs.

Mrs Skinner said donating tissues and organs saves lives, “it’s as simple as that”.

“What is not so simple is to devise a method of promoting organ donation that is medically, ethically and legally best practice,” she said.“I believe this strategy does just that.”
