Welcome. This is the website of Doctors for Assisted Suicide (DAS), a group of Scottish doctors who support the Assisted Suicide (Scotland) Bill being considered by the Scottish Parliament. We would welcome contact from nurses and other allied health professionals who wish to form their own groups.

Doctor holding patient's hand

DAS welcomes the progress in palliative care that has been made across Scotland to manage end-of-life symptoms. We support measures to increase the availability of such services.

However, we recognise that a small number of patients do not obtain adequate relief for their distress. We support controlled, well-regulated assisted suicide for this group to allow them to choose to end their lives peacefully.
