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. 

EOL Choice Act

End of Life Choice

what next - lifeline-4321641_1280

 At the 2020 General Election, New Zealanders had the opportunity to vote in a referendum on the End of Life Choice Bill, where people suffering a terminal illness have the option of assisted dying. A majority of voters supported the bill, which is expected to come into force as an act in late 2021. We want to assist people with understanding our position on the End of Life Act and our concerns.

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.
