The online Peaceful Pill eHandbook guide is updated monthly to provide the latest practical, self-help information on voluntary assisted dying (VAD) and euthanasia for the elderly, those who are seriously ill & their family/ friends.

The Peaceful Pill eHandbook provides practical information on a range of issues including the impact of COVID-19 as well as the Swiss assisted suicide organisation, Pegasos, in Basel Switzerland.

All topics are rated according to Exit’s Peacefulness and Reliability test.

A full legal analysis of each approach is also provided giving an important insight into the legal minefield that often surrounds assisted suicide, voluntary euthanasia, MAID and VAD.

Retired nurse, pushing 80 years of age and your work is so important. It is a cushion for worried, weak and frightened hearts to rest upon. Thank you

The authors Philip and Fiona provide clear and well researched information on many end of life issues which they update regularly.


I can't imagine trying to walk this road without this information. My heart and mind are at ease now. Thank you.
