Lets be constructive!

What do I need to do to have the best chance of convincing the nice A&E doctors that they really want to call ewx and not my parents when they scrape me off the wheels of a bus? Please don't suggest marriage, I'm aware that's an option already and dismiss it for other reasons.

What do I need to do to persuade the nice doctors that I really don't want them to go to every length possible to squeeze out another painful month of life for me? I guess that *at the time* I'm not likely to look like a mentally competent person but I'm pretty sure I am *now*.

If I pay a lawyer money to arrange these things does it all turn out to be an expensive waste of time when someone decides that because I don't want what they want?

Next time you're at Addenbrooke's, tell them you want to change your next-of-kin details. That's it. I have a friend as next-of-kin, just because they are sensible and I know won't panic and will be useful at telling other friends what's up. Carrying a card in your wallet saying "In case of emergency please contact [name] at [number]" is also not a terrible idea.

You do need to tell Addenbrookes to change their records too, if they have your parents on your records as next-of-kin.

Might be; records follow one around.

PALS are friendly and should be happy to answer this sort of question.

I second the notion of a card-in-wallet. I note that (at least UK) passports have a space in the back for next-of-kin details.
