What happens if some medical practitioners start working together to expand assisted dying?

The protection here is that the first (the “attending”) doctor must be independent of the second – defined in the Bill as the “independent” doctor. The first doctor cannot choose the second, but must contact SCENZ, which will refer the person seeking assisted dying to a second medical practitioner. The second medical practitioner must be independent of that person and of the medical practitioner.
