ITV News asked what you make of the proposal to make it a legal obligation for health professionals to inform families of any end-of-life care decisions they take.
Here is a selection of your responses:
Fully agree with it. Families should always be involved in the decision on what happens to a loved one.
The doctors already do this at my local hospital.
Shouldn't a final will and testament be the resounding voice at the end though? ... That states exactly what the patient would want.
