Medicine

Should assisted suicide be part of medicine? Is it appropriate for doctors to prescribe their patients lethal drugs? What might be the impact on the doctor-patient relationship? Does a right to die already exist in the UK?

We explore all these vital questions and look at the evidence relating to medicine, assisted suicide and euthanasia?
