Advance Decision - Treatment and circumstance specific
about my living will
View introductory video


An Advance Decision to refuse treatment must be valid and applicable to the circumstances that arise at the time.

Must state precisely what treatment is to be refused - a statement giving a general desire not to be treated is not enough.

Must set out the circumstances in when the refusal should apply - it is situation dependant.

Even if you choose to refuse a treatment, you will always receive pain relief and care to make sure you are clean and comfortable.

The Advance Decision cannot include a specific instruction intended to end your life.

It is not applicable to the treatment in question:
