Assisted Dying      

Les Bourgs Hospice reflects the national ethos of Hospice and palliative care, as defined by the World Health Organisation, which is, " it intends, neither to hasten or postpone death". This philosophy is a cornerstone of Hospice care. It is the view of Hospices nationally, that very careful consideration would need to be given with regard to the effect of any new law to patients, services and staff. However, in stressing the value of good palliative care at the end of life, our aim is similar to those who are bringing this matter before the States in that, we want to make available to all a compassionate and good death. Therefore, we would welcome ever closer working with everyone to help ensure this.
