Health authorities receive complaints over Assisted Dying Service

From Morning Report, 8:26 am on 24 November 2023

Health authorities have received multiple complaints about the Assisted Dying Service, including a lack of facilities willing to provide it and claims of discrimination against patients with a terminal illness who chose to use the service.

Since the End of Life Choice Act came into place two years ago more than 600 people with a terminal illness have used the service.
