Next week the campaign group Dignity in Dying is hosting an online meeting at which Health Secretary Matthew Hancock will talk to MPs.
Dignity in Dying wants the law changed so that it is legal to assist a terminally ill adult to die. When Covid-19 appeared early last year, Mr Hancock was responsible for the policy of sending elderly patients from hospital back to care homes without testing them for the virus, thus exposing other residents to risk of the illness which is particularly dangerous for older people. Is Mr Hancock a suitable person to discuss dignity in dying?
Feel free to discuss this or anything else on your mind.
