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 procedures which facilitate deceased transplantation and are normally carried out in an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) setting across NHS Scotland.

Views are primarily sought from the clinical community who have experience of the deceased donation and transplantation pathway, and their representative organisations and bodies.

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.
