One woman’s lonely death on the NHS’s ‘care pathway’ to the grave: MPs demand action after another patient is chosen to die without doctors telling familyTuesday 16 October 2012
I have exposed this ‘care pathway’ (death pathway) in my books – it is nothing more than euthanasia under another name and the thin end of a very big wedge if we allow it to become the norm.
No more state murder of the elderly and others whenever a doctor thinks it is justified. Many who were dying on the ‘pathway’ and were taken off at the insistence of family have gone on to live for a long time afterwards.
It is state murder. Nothing less.
Olive Goom – one of the increasing numbers of victims of the Dr Deaths.
‘An elderly woman died alone after doctors failed to tell relatives they were ending her life on the controversial Liverpool Care Pathway.
Olive Goom, 85, passed away with no one by her side after medics neglected to consult with her family about her treatment at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. Last night MPs, including Labour health spokesman Andy Burnham, called for an urgent review into the way the pathway operates.’
