This comment left on anti-LCP Facebook page:
"Mr Hunt can talk the talk when required, but his actions and results are less than satisfactory. "He said: "Patients must never be treated as numbers but as human beings, indeed human beings at their frailest and most vulnerable..." But he says the LCP is still a "fantastic step forward" - recap - this is a "tool" being used to allow medical teams to "diagnose" imminent death (which is not an exact science) and thereby carrying out the opposite of what we believed Doctors and Nurses to do - allowing someone to die "with dignity" (which isn't guaranteed on this pathway) instead of taking every step to save them or, just allowing them to live, as some victims have not even been "dying" in the first place. It's an outrage!"
