Two-thirds of nurses [in the UK] support the legalisation of assisted suicide, results of an Independent Nurse survey reveal.

Of 108 nurses who responded to the survey, 64 per cent said they thought assisted suicide should be legalised.

In addition, 67 per cent said that they thought that clinicians should be able to assist terminally ill patients who wish to end their lives if they are in chronic pain.

Many nurses responding to the survey said they thought that clear guidelines for practitioners would need to be in place in the event of assisted suicide being legalised.
