Assisted Dying Bill

Please write to a member of the House of Lords

The Bill to legalise "assisted dying"  - meaning assisted suicide - will be debated in the House of Lords on 18 July 2014. There will be a free vote because it is not government legislation. If passed, this Bill would place vulnerable people at serious risk. Especially if you have direct experience of caring for a dying person, either as a family member or as a health or social care professional, please write before 18 July to a Peer to tell them your views.  For more information, including details of how to write to a Peer, please visit the website of the Bishops' Conference. 

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO WRITE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE AND CERTAINLY BEFORE 18 JULY.
