Dutch insurers offer discount for registering organ donation wishes: Dutch national health insurers have launched a “donor policy,” which offers up to 10%, about £100 (€115; $150), off annual premiums for people who register their wishes, either for or against donating organs, with the voluntary national register. Insurers think that the incentive could see “several tens of thousands” of people offer to donate because seven million people have not registered. There are 1400 patients waiting for a transplant organ.
