Assisted suicide on doctors' agenda; BREAKING HEALTH NEWS.
Dr Paddy Glackin, a London GP and former deputy chair of the British Medical Association's ethics committee, will address the topic on the second day of the conference.
Dr Simon Nightingale, a consultant neurologist at Shrewsbury and Telford Hospitals, and a member of the Shropshire Humanist Group, will also speak about assisted suicide.
Dr Glackin said: "I think the time has come where we should discuss the circumstances in which assisting suicide might be acceptable and what safeguards must be in place to protect the vulnerable."
The conference, which starts on September 30, is held in Newtown, Powys.
