This leaflet is for the family and friends of those for whom a decision is needed about whether to provide or continue to provide clinically-assisted nutrition and hydration (CANH) in England and Wales. Those who are able to make and communicate their own decisions can decide for themselves whether to accept or refuse CANH.
