Today Lord Saatchi launched his Medical Innovation Bill LIVE via Google Hangout from the House of Lords.
The politician was joined by a panel of experts including Telegraph doctor Max Pemberton in a live video stream from the House of Lords today where they will call on the public to support his Medical Innovation Bill.
Introduced by Lord Saatchi last year following the death of his novelist wife Josephine Hart to ovarian cancer in 2011, the Bill seeks to give medics greater freedom to test out cutting edge treatments on dying patients.
Currently doctors are forced by the threat of legal action to stick to standard procedures, even when they are proving ineffective.
Lord Saatchi’s bill has already received huge public support and health secretary Jeremy Hunt promised to support legislation on the issue after the public consultation which is launched today and ends in May.
