Advance decisions

An advance decision (living will) to refuse medical treatment is a document that sets out what medical treatment you would like to refuse in the event of a given situation.

The Mental Capacity Act 2005 sets out the rules regarding these documents and must be complied with fully in order for the document to be effective and legally binding.

Personal to you

An advance decision or living will is very individual and personal to you.

When you come to see us to discuss your advance decision, we explain how such an advance decision interacts with a lasting power of attorney (LPA) for health and welfare.
