Docs’ dy­ing sur­vey

Huddersfield Daily Examiner - - National -

DOC­TORS are to be asked if they would help a ter­mi­nally ill pa­tient to die and whether the law should be changed to al­low as­sisted dy­ing.

The Royal Col­lege of Physi­cians is to poll its 35,000 mem­bers and fel­lows next month on whether or not there should be a change in the law to per­mit as­sisted dy­ing.

It will also ask whether its mem­bers would be pre­pared to “par­tic­i­pate ac­tively” in as­sisted dy­ing if the law was changed.
