Executive Summary

The new Donation and Transplantation Plan for Scotland sets out priorities for action over the period to 2020, in order for Scotland to be one of the best performing countries in terms of organ donation in the world.

The Plan identifies five priorities the Government wishes to deliver: increasing the number of people who have made their wishes about organ donation known; increasing the availability of organs; making every donation count; ensuring NHSScotland supports donation and transplantation; and ensuring the public in Scotland is informed and engaged about donation and transplantation.

The Plan sets out 21 recommendations to deliver these priorities.
