What is a Living Will?
There’s no need to travel – We can take your instructions over the phone.
It allows you to indicate that you wish to refuse certain types of medical treatment, should you be unable to make or communicate a decision about your treatment in the future.
When you’re ill, you can usually discuss treatment options with your doctor and then jointly reach a decision about your future care. However, you may be admitted to hospital when unconscious or unable to make your own decisions about your treatment or communicate your wishes.
An advance decision lets you indicate that you want to refuse certain types of medical treatment in certain situations.
It must be respected by medical professionals providing your care, whether or not they think it’s in your best interests.
