Doctors challenge euthanasia poll

April 2019

A group of four doctors has filed a legal challenge against the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) in relation to a recent poll on euthanasia.

The group say that the poll is being conducted in a misleading way and is aiming to force the Royal College to abandon its longstanding opposition to euthanasia.

The RCP controversially announced that it would change its stance on euthanasia to ‘neutral’ unless sixty per cent of members or more were opposed.

The four doctors have said this move is unlawful and have launched a crowdfunding campaign to fund the legal challenge.
