Registrar (assisted dying) Annual Report – June 2023.

The End of Life Choice Act 2019 (the Act) came into force on the 7 November 2021. This established the Assisted Dying – Ngā Ratonga Mate Whakaahuru service in New Zealand Aotearoa. The Ministry of Health is responsible for the administration of the Act. The Act requires the Registrar (assisted dying) to report to the Minister of Health about the operation of the service each year by the 30 June. This Registrar (assisted dying) Annual Report covers the period from 1 April 2022 to 31 March 2023 and is the first full year report published since the Act came into force. In addition to information required by the Act, this report summarizes information relating to the service generally, service usage, and feedback about the service.
