It is 10 years since the first British person chose to travel to Switzerland and end their life with the help of the Swiss Dignitas organisation since then 217 British people have used its assisted-dying services.
Today programme presenter Evan Davis spoke to Win Crew, whose husband Reg was the second British person to commit assisted suicide at Dignitas.
Reg suffered with motor neurone disease and had got the idea of going to Dignitas from a television programme, and he sent off for information.
Mrs Crew explained what happened: "All we did really was give him his last wish."
