Update your existing advance decision - Coronavirus (COVID-19)

If you already have an advance decision and want to refuse treatment for coronavirus you will need to update your form. You need to follow these steps as they are legally required.

If you used a paper form:

  • add the statement from the previous page (or your own wording) to your refusals of treatment, on our form this is section 4.E
  • sign your name and add the date next to this statement
  • a witness needs to watch you do this, and then sign and date next to your signature

If you used our website:

  • you will need to login to your account to edit your form
  • add the statement from the previous page (or your own wording) in the section called ‘other scenarios’
  • download and print your updated form
  • sign and date your form
  • a witness needs to watch you do this, and then sign and date the form too
