The End of Life Choice Act (2019) came into force on the 7 November 2021. This established the new Assisted Dying – Ngā Ratonga Mate Whakaahuru service in New Zealand Aotearoa. The Ministry of Health administers the service through a new Secretariat. The Act requires the Registrar (assisted dying) to report to the Minister of Health about the operation of the service each year by the 30 June. This is the first annual report from the service and covers the period from 7 November to 31 March 2022. It reports data required by the Act as well as a description of the implementation process used to prepare the service for its start on the 7 November 2021.
