I found this in my email and thought I'd pass it on to everyone...

On Thursday, 19 May, the charity Compassion in Dying launches a national End-of-Life Rights Information Line, a free-phone service supporting people who are dying, their loved ones, carers and healthcare professionals.

The Information Line is the first of its kind and will support people by providing information on their existing end-of-life rights and how they can prepare for a good quality end of life, for example by making an Advance Decision or Lasting Power of Attorney.

We are keen that as many people as possible know about the Information Line so that they know they can access it if they need to. The Information Line is 0800 999 2434; information can also be found at www.compassionindying.org.uk.
