Assisted suicide increasingly popular in Switzerland Assisted suicide increasingly popular in Switzerland Photo:LightHunter/Depositphotos The Local news@thelocal.ch @thelocalswitzer 15 November 2017 10:50 CET+01:00 More people in Switzerland than ever before are turning to assisted suicide to end their lives, according to the latest statistics. In 2015, 965 Swiss residents used assisted suicide services in Switzerland, according to the latest figures from the Swiss statistics office. That’s up from 742 the year before and a remarkable rise on the year 2000 when only 86 people resorted to assisted suicide, said the Tages Anzeiger. Women are more likely than men to seek assistance to die (539 against 426 in 2015). In contrast, far fewer women commit unassisted suicide (279 against 792 men in 2015). The figures do not include people who come from abroad to commit suicide in Switzerland. Speaking to the Tages Anzeiger, medical professor Felix Gutzwiller said the reason for the rise in assisted suicide was related to Switzerland’s aging population and elderly people’s increasing desire to take control over the end of their lives. Assisted suicide organizations are now more accepted by the medical profession than they used to be, he said. What’s more, today’s elderly have grown up knowing about assisted suicide organization Exit, which was founded in 1982, and the organization’s membership has doubled over the past ten years. Understanding of euthanasia has increased in recent years, added Exit director Bernard Sutter. Twenty years ago finding a doctor to issue a prescription for the deadly drug used by Exit was much more difficult than it is today, he said. READ ALSO: Co-founder of Swiss assisted suicide organization Exit dies aged 100 Exit offers its services only to Swiss residents who must be members of the organization. Currently, they must have an incurable illness, though the group is considering extending its service to elderly people in good health. A second Swiss organization, Dignitas, also provides assisted suicide services to non-Swiss who live outside the country. All ‘end-of-life’ workers are unpaid volunteers, since assisted suicide is only legal in Switzerland if the assistant does not benefit financially from the person’s death. The figures on assisted suicide in 2015 came out of an analysis of all causes of death in that year by the Swiss statistics office. The flu epidemic at the start of the year and the July heatwave contributed to a six per cent rise in the number of deaths compared to the previous year. The rise meant life expectancy in Switzerland actually dipped slightly in 2015, something that hadn’t happened since 1990, however that rose again in 2016 when the number of deaths fell. The principal causes of death in 2015 remained accident and suicide for young people under the age of 40, and cancer and cardiovascular problems for older people.

More than 100,000 terminally ill patients denied hospice care An ageing population and funding cuts or freezes are piling pressure on hospices across the country, Sky News finds. 10:06, UK, Wednesday 02 August 2017 An ageing population is piling pressure on the social care system Image: Britain’s 200 hospices treat around 200,000 people every year By Paul Kelso, Health Correspondent One in four terminally ill people who need expert end-of-life care are not receiving it because of funding pressures, the hospice movement has told Sky News. Hospice UK said as many as 118,000 people in the UK with terminal or life-limiting conditions are not able to access palliative care from its members. Britain's 200 hospices treat around 200,000 people every year but, with an ageing population, demand for their services is growing. Hospices offer palliative care to improve the quality of life of those dying, as well as emotional and psychological support to families facing bereavement. On average, hospices most of which are charities, receive just one-third of their funding from the NHS and rely on donations, shops, bequests and investments for the rest. Hospice UK said two-thirds of hospices had their NHS funding cut or frozen last year. It argues that with more certain funding it could treat many more people, significantly easing the pressure on NHS hospitals. Around 500,000 people die in England and Wales every year, half of them in hospitals despite many of them having no clinical need to be there. :: Hospice strives for quality of life in shadow of death Staff at St Luke's Hospice Image: Staff at St Luke's Hospice begin their day with a meeting "What we really want to see is more stability and sustainability in funding," Jonathan Ellis, head of advocacy at Hospice UK, told Sky News. "If we just look at last year, two-thirds of hospices had their funding cut or frozen, adding more pressure to hospices at precisely the time demand is growing and more people need the care hospices provide. "At the moment the NHS is spending an awful lot of money and very often not meeting the needs of those at the end of life very effectively. Half of people will die in a hospital bed when they don't have a clinical need to be there, and hospitals are the most expensive bit of the system, and the part that is under the most pressure." Sky News was given exclusive access to St Luke's Hospice in Sheffield and spoke to staff, patients and families about the impact hospice care can have on the terminally ill and their loved ones. We visited patients at home with a rapid response team of palliative care nurses who treat the most seriously ill, as well as interviewing in-patients and their families. Most spoke openly and with remarkable honesty about their conditions and their attitude to death. Many praised the hospice for helping them prepare for death, and the support given to their families. Jean Knight, who had multiple cancers, told us how she refused to become negative despite her terminal diagnosis and grave condition. She was treated at home and was determined to stay there with her husband Richard. "You have got two choices," she told us. "Quality or quantity. What would you like? Quality. If you've got quality of life, you've got everything you need. "You get your dignity [from hospice care]. If you ask something, they give it to you. If you ask for pain relief it's there straight away. They don't make you wait for anything." She added: "They're so much on the ball. They're an absolutely fantastic place. I couldn't fault them." St Luke's hospice in Sheffield Image: St Luke's hospice in Sheffield is a modern building that looks like a private hospital A month after we first interviewed Mrs Knight she died, surrounded by her family. St Luke's chief executive Peter Hartland said it receives just 25% of its funding from the NHS, and has to raise £6m every year from public donations and a chain of charity shops. He said that charitable status allows the hospice more discretion about how it spends its money - for example they run a high-quality kitchen making food to order - but said a doubling of NHS funding for hospices could have a huge impact on care across Sheffield. "If you took a poll of my peers across the country there would be consensus that we want better funding for hospice and palliative care," he said. "We are after a more level playing field for what would be seen as essential services in our city, and without them the whole of the healthcare sector in Sheffield would be worse off." Last year the Government made a commitment to improve end of life care across the country, which includes offering every patient a chance to discuss plans for their death with doctors and carers.

UK funeral firm Dignity reports first half profit and revenue growth as number of deaths rise 09:30 02 Aug 2017 Dignity said it continues to expect the number of deaths in 2017 to be lower than last year Dignity Dignity left its guidance for the full year unchanged A higher number of deaths helped UK funeral company Dignity plc (LON:DTY) to deliver an increase in first half profits and revenue. The company said the number of deaths it dealt with in the six months to 30 June were 308,000, up 2% from 302,000 the same period a year earlier. Underlying profit rose 9% to a record £46.1mln from £42.4mln in 2016 and revenue edged up 7% to £59.5mln from £55.6mln. Dignity raised its interim dividend by 10% to 8.65p from 7.85p. "The year has started well for the group, with good operational performance, continued excellent customer survey results and further acquisitions of established funeral businesses,” said chief executive Mike McCollum. However, McCollum cautioned that the company remains alert to the strategic challenges it faces in a competitive environment with aggressive pricing activity on funerals and pre-arranged funeral plans. “This is reflected in the ongoing development of our digital strategy and the leadership we have demonstrated in calling for proper regulation of pre-arranged funeral plans,” he said. “We will continue to review the scope of our service offering in the light of changing consumer demands and build on our strong market-leading position." Dignity to launch social media service Dignity expects incremental costs of up to £1.0mln in 2017 to improve its online presence in its funeral locations in the UK. The company is also launching a new service for customers to make it easier for them to notify family members through social media and the internet of funeral arrangements. The service will allow families to arrange flowers and make donations online. Funerals and cremations rise The group had 811 funeral locations at the end of the first half, compared to 777 last year, following the acquisition of additional sites. It conducted 36,700 funerals during the period, flat on last year. Dignity performed 33,700 cremations, compared to 28,900 in 2016, as it expanded its locations to 45 from 39 last year. Looking ahead, the company said it continues to expect the number of deaths in 2017 to be slightly lower than last year but its guidance for the full year remains “positive and unchanged”. Shares rose 0.35% to 2,569p in morning trading. rene-3.fw.png Renae Dyer

Alan Oscroft | Wednesday, 2nd August, 2017 | More on: DTY DVO William Murphy. Licence: https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.0/ One of my favourite ever headlines from The Onion was World death rate unchanged at 100%, and as long as that remains true, the long-term customer base for Dignity (LSE: DTY) seems pretty much guaranteed. Earnings per share almost doubled at the UK’s’ largest funeral operator between 2012 and 2016, and investors piled in and created a typical growth spike, The share price soared, but from round the middle of 2015 it’s been pretty flat, and today stands at 2,552p. Early earnings growth looks set to cool, with analysts expecting just a 4% rise this year, but Wednesday’s interim results suggest…

source: the connexion President launches euthanasia debate July 18, 2012 PRESIDENT Hollande has reignited debate on euthanasia, saying he wants to "go further" than the existing "Leonetti Law" on the end of life, which rules it out. Visiting a hospice in the Hauts-de-Seine, the president said he wants to put in place a reform of care for the terminally ill in the "coming months", possibly allowing for a form of assisted dying. The current law says that where someone is terminally ill doctors are not obliged to persist with "relentless" attempts to prolong their life without regard to the quality of it. It falls short, however of allowing doctors to take any active role in shortening life. Hollande asked: "Can we go further in exceptional cases where withdrawing treatment is not enough to ease the suffering of patients going through irreversible pain which calls for a deliberate medical act, taken after a shared, thought-through decision?" He has charged the president of a national medical ethics committee, Prof Didier Sicard, with running consultations around the country to feed into reforms. However euthanasia pressure group the Association Pour le Droit de Mourir dans la Dignité, says the professor has a Catholic bias to his views.
