Most Doctors Don’t Support Assisted Dying

Most Doctors Don’t Support Assisted Dying

Most healthcare professionals do not agree with assisted suicide, a survey released today has shown.

Members and fellows of the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) were asked about their personal opinions on assisted dying.

Many (57.5%) of those who completed the survey did not support a change in the law to permit assisted suicide and 62.5% believe that changes in palliative care should enable patients to die with dignity.
