Should I talk to my GP about making an Advance Decision or an Advance Statement?

It’s important to speak to your doctor about your wishes for care and treatment. Your doctor can:

  • Help you to understand your treatment options so you can decide what’s right for you
  • Support you to think through any decisions about medical treatment, making sure you understand how any decisions or choices will affect you

However, it is not a requirement that you discuss your Advance Decision or Advance Statement with your doctor.
