High-profile GP Dr Michael Clements says he has had a change of mind on voluntary assisted dying after an encounter with a terminally ill cancer patient. 

Before Irene Bizon’s appointment, the RACGP rural chair says his Anglican faith and medical training meant that he could never become involved in voluntary assisted dying (VAD).
