Also known as Advance Medical Directives, these documents are made whilst you are still of sound mind and able to make your own reasoned decisions. They are therefore different from a Lasting Power of Attorney for Personal Welfare in that this expresses your wishes concerning your own personal welfare and is not your permission for someone else to act for you.
By creating this document you are making it clear that should you become terminally ill you do not wish for any medical intervention whatsoever in prolonging your life unnaturally, perhaps with life-prolonging drugs for example, but rather that you prefer to be given adequate pain relief and are permitted to pass away with dignity.
Now a legal instrument under the terms of the Mental Capacity Act 2005, such documents are recognised throughout the medical profession and save much heartache and difficult decision making at an emotional traumatic time.
