Liverpool Care Pathway – The Evidence Is Gathered

Meanwhile, the actual anecdotal evidence mounting up goes mostly unreported and ignored...

This is being done now to my mother in law Hilda Taylor in Oldham Royal (09/09/2012). We are desparately trying to stop it.Euthanesia is not legal in this country. The NHS is not above the law. No one should die by starvation or dehydration. You wouldn't do it to a dog - you'd get prosecuted by the RSPCA.

the lcp method is a way of persecuting the weakest and most vulnerable of our society.My 83 year old, coherent, painfree mother has just been finished off at Good Hope Hospital, Sutton Coldfield by this method. It was callous and inhumane to see, we were not even consulted.

Ralph Winstanley was murdered on the Liverpool Care Pathway. No-one will investigate that murder. He had not been dying. ralphwinstanleyofwath.blogspot.com

Euthenasia by the back door and should be prohibited by lawHow can they call this "care" ?

09:48, Jul 30, Mr. martin hogg, United Kingdom
deliberate ending of life is murder

16:23, Jul 29, Mrs. HEATHER BLENKINSOP, United Kingdom
MY GRANDMOTHER WAS PLACED ON THIS PATHWAY AND WE WERE NOT TOLD. MEDS, WATER AND FOOD WERE STOPPED. NAN COULD EAT, DRINK, AND TAKE MEDICINES UNTIL SHE WAS HEAVILY SEDATED. LEFT TO DIE WITHOUT TELLING US, HER FAMILY. THIS IS MUNCHAUSENS BY PROXY ON A MASSIVE SCALE. MURDER! AND THE NHS ARE GETTING AWAY WITH IT.

very bad practise and a very slippery road who will be nextirene morris

Denial of food and water to the ill is truly disturbing. I am shocked and appalled this is happening in the UK!

15:16, Jul 24, Mrs. maureen randa, United Kingdom
To watch your sister aged 59yrs be wiped out by the LCP in a hospital in the city she was born (liverpool) it makes me feel so ashamed that i stood by and allowed this situation to happen !!! i pray that people will now unite and stop this abuse of the ill and vunerable.I ask the question what is the difference between LCP and DR HAROLD SHIPMAN ?????nobody has the right to play god !! WHO < WHERE

12:44, Jul 09, Ms. janet kirkman, United Kingdom
FIRST, DO NO HARM.THE RIGHT TO LIFE IS ALWAYS PARAMOUNT.

In the Hippocratic Oath we promise to treat honestly & preserve life. Nowadays we speak about benificence & non-maleficence, but we must make sure we do not interpret this too widely.

11:43, Jun 22, Mrs. J Johnstone, United Kingdom
LCP is absolutely disgusting.Who, in God's name, would deny a dying person a drink of water?

17:01, Apr 13, Ms. katherine wentworth, KS
The Catholic Church teaches us that "no commitment to a hoped for 'greater good' can erase or diminish the wrong of directly taking innocent human lives." As believers who recognize that each human life as the gift of an infinitely loving God, we insist that every human being matters to God.

05:53, Mar 15, Paul Lucas, United Kingdom
I'm afraid it's no good medical people telling us that they wouldn't put patients on the LCP without consultation because it's patently obvious that they do. How can someone die with dignity when they are having all nutrients and fluids withdrawn, if a healthy person doesn't have water he will die in about 2 weeks and it wont be with dignity. The medical profession should hang its head in shame, even if it's a government authorised proceedure they should protest that it is against all they're supposed to represent. After all it's no good saying I was only obeying orders when you are causing people to die in pain and without any dignity whatsoever.

13:47, Mar 06, Mr. Peter Dowling, United Kingdom
You can tell a lot about a society by the way it treats its old people, the very young and the very sick. I was born very sick and one day I'll die, hopefully when I'm very old.Hopefully the same spirit of humanity and compassion that welcomed me into the world will see me out of it and into the next. BAN THE LCP

12:12, Mar 06, Mrs. Amanda West, France
It is a duty incumbernt on every medical person to protect life and do no harm.

15:10, Feb 06, Mrs. catherine prentice, United Kingdom
Please all sign , my father has just died on lcp, we were not informed at all that he was on this programe . We were told he had hours to live , he lasted 8 days . Im devasted and i feel so guilty . we were led to beleve was best for him . Was not so . This must stop . ITS MURDER .

Please do not let your loved ones go on the lcp,it is wrong in so many ways. My dad died on this lcp,they never even give him a chance to recover,they stop water going into your body,take you off the meds and give you so much morphine,there is no way to see signs of progress. This sounds horrible but its the goverments way of getting people to die faster and clear up hospital bed space. If i could turn back time i would never allow my dad to go on this. My dads words when he died was. "they are animals"

13:06, Jan 01, Ms. Dagmar Spencer, United Kingdom
My Dad died with horrible cracked lips and a tongue like cracked leather. There is nothing caring about it

23:40, Dec 02, Dr. Patrick Pullicino, United Kingdom
It is not scientifically possible to diagnose impending death as the LCP purports to do. The LCP is instead an assessment of the perceived quality of life of the patient by the medical team and as such is euthanasia.

18:15, Dec 02, Mr. John Trask, United Kingdom
Particularly when the patient is a wife, a mother, a business partner and only 49years old!

13:45, Dec 02, Dr. Margaret Taylor, United Kingdom
It is a duty incumbent upon every medical person to protect life and to do no harm.

13:38, Dec 02, Name not displayed, France
YESYES

15:04, Nov 25, Ms. Christine Griffiths, United Kingdom
Can we trust that the LCP is only being used to ease the process of dying and not to hasten death itself.There is always talk of 'evidence based medicine.' I insist on the right to 'evidence based trust.'

10:56, Sep 23, Ms. Linda Bates, United Kingdom
It is a duty incumbent upon every medical person to protect life and to do no harm.The right to life is always paramount

11:48, Sep 11, Mrs. kim steward, United Kingdom
My mother was killed on the liverpool care plan at the james paget hospital she was given two days to drink before they removed the drip it was later found that her false teeth had been stuck together because of a paste like food they had given her and she could not open her mouth to drink she had recieved no mouth care.Who gives the nhs the right to play god

05:02, Sep 04, A Omisore, United Kingdom
Absolutely

17:34, Aug 15, Mr. Stephen Seery, United Kingdom
YesYes
