Assisted Dying Bill - Your Help is Needed

Please write to a member of the House of Lords: The Bill to legalise ‘assisted dying’, meaning assisted suicide, will be debated by the House of Lords on Friday 18th July 2014. There will be a free vote, because it is not Government legislation. If passed, this Bill would place vulnerable people at serious risk. Especially if you have direct experience of caring for a dying person, either as a family member or as a health or social care professional, please write before 18th July to a Peer, to tell them your views. For more information, including details of how to write to a Peer, please click here; IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO WRITE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE AND CERTAINLY BEFORE the 18TH JULY.
