Bill No.149

SynopsisThe Short Title of the Bill was amended from Acts Amendment (Advance Health Care Planning) Bill 2006 to Acts Amendment (Consent to Medical Treatment) Bill 2006.

This Bill realises the State Government's commitment to reform the law relating to medical treatment for the dying. While the Government does not support euthanasia, terminally ill people deserve the right to die with dignity and have their wishes about medical treatment respected. This Bill is necessary to give people certainty when dealing with end of life issues, enabling terminally ill people to govern their medical treatment and protecting medical professionals who adhere to their wishes.
