Hospice Southland provides specialist palliative care to those with a life-limiting illness in Southland and the Wakatipu Basin, free
of charge, and ideally in their setting of choice.
As the election referendum approaches we want to assist people with understanding our position on the End of Life Act and our concerns.
It is important to acknowledge your vote is not about the concept of euthanasia. Your vote is about whether this Act is the best possible legislation to keep people safe.
No matter the result, hospice will continue to support people regardless of their desire for euthanasia. This is a complex, emotional and challenging topic and we acknowledge the range of individual opinions that exist.
Everyone living in Southland and the Wakatipu Basin has access to the highest quality palliative care.
