Dying Well

The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Dying Well is a cross-party group of Peers and MPs whose aims are:

  • to promote good end of life care, including raising awareness of specialist palliative care (in which Britain is a world-leader) and pressing for more resources to be devoted to palliative care within the NHS to ensure that it is available to everyone who needs it;
  • to oppose the legalisation of euthanasia and physician assisted suicide.

The Group is chaired by Baroness Finlay, who is herself a leading palliative care physician. It draws the attention of Parliament to key issues affecting its remit through meetings with invited speakers and through regular Parliamentary Briefs, which are also published on its website.

Dying Well is a separate organisation, independent from Care Not Killing. It is financed solely by voluntary contributions from its members and receives no external donations or funding. Care Not Killing has sought, and received, permission to provide weblinks to the following selected articles from its website:
