Guidance relating to assisting suicide – General Medical Council [UK] – 31 January 2013

“The General Medical Council has published new guidance for:

  • the Investigation Committee and case examiners (decision-makers) to use when they are considering allegations about a doctor’s fitness to practise that relate to encouraging or assisting suicide
  • doctors to use when a patient seeks advice about ending their lives

Both pieces of guidance come into effect today.”
