Tell us your views on Voluntary Assisted Dying

The HSU has been approached to join the Voluntary Assisted Dying Alliance, a group whose purpose is to lobby for legislative changes that would allow competent adults to make informed decisions about their own medical care.

With the introduction of voluntary assisted dying laws, adults who are in the end stages of a terminal illness and suffering intolerably would be able to end their suffering at a time and place of their choosing and in the presence of their loved ones, if they wish.

This is undeniably a complex issue and one about which there are a large range of different views and emotional reactions. The HSU is therefore seeking members’ feedback before offering a response to the Alliance.

Please complete the following 2-question survey to register your view:
