What is a Living Will - Advance Directive?
It is a written record of medical treatment that you may or may not wish to receive in the future. It only comes in to effect if you lose mental capacity or otherwise lose the ability to communicate your wishes.
A living will sets out your wishes for future medical treatment should you suffer from any one or more of a list of serious and irreversible medical conditions, including, for example, severe cancer or advanced dementia. Living wills typically state that you are not to receive life sustaining treatment, such as artificial feeding. While obvious pain and suffering is to be relieved, no attempt is to be made to prolong your life.
Benefits of having a Living Will - Advance Directive
Many people have strong feelings about the medical treatment they may or may not wish to receive, if they were to suffer from a terminal illness. If you do, a living will would allow you to clearly communicate these wishes to your family and doctors at a time when you are no longer able to do so personally.
A living will can also help to alleviate your family’s distress at having to make difficult decisions about your medical care. In effect, it takes the decision outwith your family’s hands.
How is a Living Will - Advance Directive given effect?
In England and Wales and Northern Ireland, where a living will is binding on doctors, provided that it was granted while you fully understood the implications of signing it.
Your living will would only be used if you lost the ability to communicate your wishes. This may be due to mental incapacity or a physical condition that prevents you from communicating.
Who should be notified?
You should make people aware that you have put a living will in place.
Your GP should be advised. A copy of the living will can be placed on your medical records for ease of future reference.
You should tell your immediate relatives. Your next of kin may be consulted about your medical treatment if you are unable to communicate what your wishes are. It is important that your family are made aware of these wishes.
