Statement on assisted dying

St Richard’s Hospice helps the people of Worcestershire to live well and, when the time comes, to have a good death. 

We support patients, families, and carers to navigate the experience of death and dying and are committed to the continued development and delivery of high-quality palliative and end of life care.

St Richard’s takes a neutral position on assisted dying; we neither support nor oppose a change in the law.

Our care and support is, and always will be, provided within the legal and governance frameworks of our society.
