What is a living will?
A living will lets you indicate what type of treatment you want, or refuse some types of medical treatment in certain situations if you lack capacity to make or communicate your decisions at the time.
The term ‘living will’ doesn’t have a legal meaning but usually refers to either an advance decision or an advance statement.
Further information on advance decisions and advance statements, including the rules in regard to creating them, can be found in the following publications:
FS72 Advance decisions, advance statements and living wills (PDF 397KB)
IG51: Before you go - planning and support for the end of life (PDF 478KB)
