Chaired by Sir Peter Simpson
The UK Donation Ethics Committee (UKDEC) is an independent source of advice and guidance on ethical aspects of organ donation and transplantation.
It aims to increase professional and public confidence in the ethical basis for decisions and processes in organ donation.
The UKDEC will consider ethical issues in their broader context in society.
It does not seek to increase organ donation directly through its work.
NEW! UKDEC Consultation now open.
Exploring the legal and ethical issues in relation to donation from children. The consultation will run until 14 February 2014.
