Advance Decisions to refuse medical treatment of any sort are legally enforceable decisions which will take effect from the point in time that you loose the mental capacity to give or withhold consent to a given form of medical treatment.
Advance Decisions to refuse life sustaining treatment must be in writing and must be witnessed. A poorly drafted Advance Decision document could be lawfully ignored by clinicians if the circumstances to which it applies are unclear. We are experts in drafting Advance Decision documents and can discuss your circumstances with you to ensure that your wishes are respected even after you become incapable of taking your own decisions about your medical treatment.
