R Griffith
Abstract
An NHS trust recently agreed a £45 000 settlement with the family of a woman who was given treatment contrary to her advance decision for some 2 years before she died. In this article, Richard Griffith discusses the requirements for a valid applicable advance decision to refuse treatment and a district nurse’s duty to record and give effect to the wishes expressed within it.
