Glasgow Event: January 31st – Learning Lessons from Canada’s Euthanasia Experience

Tuesday 31st January

7pm to 9pm


Join Professor Leonie Herx and Professor David Galloway, in Glasgow or online, as they discuss the lessons Scotland can learn from Canada about assisted suicide.

If Scotland legalises assisted suicide, it will fundamentally and irrevocably change the nature of medical practice and could lead to euthanasia.

Our Duty of Care invites health professionals to this evening event in Glasgow with Professor David Galloway hosting Professor Leonie Herx for a discussion about the Canadian experience of their Medical Assistance in Dying law, and the lessons that Scotland needs to take seriously from it.

There will be an opportunity for questions and answers for those attending the event in-person.



Tuesday, 31st January – 7pm to 9pm



The Princess Alexandra Room, Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons, 232-242 Saint Vincent Street, Glasgow, G2 5RJ
