Many patients in Jersey have pleaded with doctors to help them end their lives, according to one GP.
Dr Nigel Minihane, who chairs the Primary Care Body, has been speaking to ITV News following a debate on assisted dying earlier this week.
He says although medical professionals cannot fulfill those wishes legally in the Channel Islands, there are ways they can help.
Around 200 people attended a debate on assisted dying at the Arts Centre on Wednesday night (11 September).
After listening to the arguments for and against, an audience vote suggested most would be in favour of changing the law so that those who are terminally ill have the right to decide to end their own lives.
Jersey's government says it is looking to actively engage with islanders about the issue.
