Fears over my fu­ture

Sunday Mail (UK) - - The Judge -

I do not want to be re­sus­ci­tated should I take se­ri­ously ill. I want to en­sure my wishes are met so I am not kept alive by ma­chines. Is there any­thing I can do to make sure that hap­pens? A liv­ing will is an op­tion and it is worth mak­ing your in­ten­tions clear. But in Scot­land this is not legally bind­ing and would only be taken into con­sid­er­a­tion should the sit­u­a­tion arise. Speak to a lawyer about hav­ing a power of at­tor­ney drawn up so your fam­ily can make med­i­cal de­ci­sions on your be­half.
