The Department of Health has published a draft general scheme for Advance Healthcare Directives which will be included in the Assisted Decision-Making (Capacity) Bill 2013.

This means that the government proposes to introduce legislation to enable an adult with capacity to make a legally binding Advance Healthcare Directive and refuse any form of treatment up to and including life-sustaining treatment.
