Choice and control at the end of life

The high profile public debate about assisted suicide illustrates that many people feel strongly that it is important to retain some control of their own destiny if their health declines. The proposed Assisted Suicide (Scotland) Bill aims to introduce an additional choice, subject to conditions, for people with terminal, life-shortening conditions. Within this context it is relevant to consider the choices and mechanisms that currently exist to enable people to exercise some control if their health declines and as they approach the end of life. The attached briefing aims to provide MSPs with factual information about these existing choices and mechanisms.
