Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be in ICU – as a patient? Have you made an Advance Directive? Does your family (and family doctor) know your wishes?

‘Why doctors don’t die like the rest of us’ explains what it can really be like in ICU – unlike the rosy picture offered by TV soaps, and why doctors are rarely found there as patients.


Another site well worth visiting if you want to think about issues of autonomy and dying is dignityindying.org.uk
