Human Tissue (Authorisation) (Specified Type B Procedures) (Scotland) Regulations: consultation

We are seeking views on medical procedures proposed to be specified as Type B pre-death procedures, alongside how they may be authorised and what conditions may be applied to them. Pre-death procedures are the medical procedures carried out to increase the likelihood of successful transplantation.


Important note when reviewing this consultation document, its content and questions.

The Scottish Government is seeking views, in accordance with the Human Tissue (Authorisation) (Scotland) Act 2019, on specified medical procedures which facilitate transplantation and are normally carried out in an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) setting across NHS Scotland.

Views are sought in particular from the clinical community who have experience of the deceased donation and transplantation pathway, and their representative organisations and bodies. Views from members of the public, patients' groups and others are also welcome.

This consultation paper and its annex outline the context in which procedures take place, including the new framework as provided for in the Human Tissue (Authorisation) (Scotland) Act 2019. Please review the paper before answering the questions.
