Liverpool Care Pathway – The Grand Plan

Central NHS “rationers” are deciding what treatments are “cost effective” under restrictions imposed by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE).

Are these Central NHS “rationers” the ilk  of who will sit on the “Death Panels” to which Bill Gates here refers…?

Is the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE), in determining what treatment is fitting and what treatment is not and for whom, partaking of the role of the “Death Panels” to which Bill Gates here refers…? 

Bill Gates’ “death panel” comments were made at the Aspen Institute Ideas Festival in Aspen Colorado.

Gates said there was a “lack of willingness” to consider the question of choosing between “spending a million dollars on that last three months of life for that patient” or laying off ten teachers.

“But that’s called the death panel and you’re not supposed to have that discussion.”

During the AIF interview, Gates implied that elderly patients undergoing expensive health care treatments should be killed and the money spent elsewhere.

Gates joins this illustrious company -

Lady Warnock
Baroness Warnock has said that elderly people suffering from dementia are “wasting people’s lives” and “wasting the resources of the National Health Service” and should be allowed to die. These are the words of a well-respected commentator on medical ethics.

Lady Warnock’s comments were published in an interview with the magazine of the Church of Scotland, Life and Work, and have been condemned by dementia charities.

Jacques Attali
Jacques Attali, is a leading French intellectual and former President of the European Bank for reconstruction and development.

He has said, "As soon as he goes beyond 60-65 years of age man lives beyond his capacity to produce, and he costs society a lot of money...euthanasia will be one of the essential instruments of our future societies."

Martin Amis
Martin Amis says euthanasia is 'an evolutionary inevitability'

Martin Amis says the 'primitive' Christian notion of the 'sanctity of life' is holding back debate on assisted suicide

Question: Is there some ‘Grand Plan’ at work here…?
