The Scottish Government has said it will wait until it can review the situation in Wales, where they have understood the urgency and grasped the chance to make a difference with their own opt-out system for organ donation.
We know there is enough support within the Scottish Parliament for a bill to change the law which would move to presumed consent to donate organs unless you opt out, as a majority of MSPs either signed our petition or backed a motion by SNP MSP Humza Yousaf on the issue.
While the Scottish Government instead wants to increase the donor pool through a campaign, which is obviously welcome and should be supported, the longer we wait and see with the Welsh experience, the longer people have to wait for a donor.
For those on a waiting list for a suitable organ, every day the Government delays acting is another day which is an ordeal.
By moving to introduce a law that ordeal can be ended sooner for patients and their families.
Lives can be saved now. The politicians know it, the health charities and medical opinion know it and the patients on the waiting list know it. It's time to act.
