Request a VAD Witness or Contact Person
If you are applying for Voluntary Assisted Dying, you need to appoint a Contact Person who will return unused medication to the pharmacy if you die before taking the medication or decide not to take it.
One stage of the application process also requires that you complete a form formally requesting voluntary assisted dying. This has to be done in the presence of your coordinating practitioner and two other people who act as Witnesses.
DWDV is able to provide you with assistance, should you require it. We have a pool of trained Witnesses to help and we are also able to assist in finding a suitable Contact Person.
If you would like us to help you with either of these, please contact us.
