Assisted Dying Review Panel

The Assisted Dying Review Panel has been established to examine the detailed final proposals for the introduction of assisted dying in Jersey, lodged by the Council of Ministers on 22nd March 2024.

The topic of assisted dying has been the subject of an extensive two-Phase consultation process undertaken by Government, following the outcome of the 2021 Jersey Assisted Dying Citizens' Jury deliberations, which voted 78% in favour of assisted dying being permitted in Jersey.

Due to the expansive nature of assisted dying and the extensive consultation work already undertaken by Government, the Panel will focus on key issues related to the final Proposals for Assisted Dying in Jersey. These will include the processes, safeguards, eligibility criteria, and the previous body of evidence received to date from experts and key stakeholders.
