Dear Dr              ,

The Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) is surveying its members on the topic of assisted dying. 

I hope you don’t mind me writing to you, but as your patient, it is vital that I can have an open and honest conversation with you about death, including the implications of any incurable illnesses, my quality of life, available treatment such as palliative care, and whether I am informed about the realities of an assisted death abroad. 

I’m asking you to support legal, compassionate, and safeguarded assisted dying for both the terminally ill and incurably suffering, like nearly 90% of the public agree we should. One person a week, despite palliative care, is now forced to travel from the UK to end their life abroad, and I don’t think this is right. 

Please vote to support the legalisation of assisted dying in the RCGP’s poll!

Yours sincerely,
