Doctor: British Health Service Euthanizes 130,000 Patients a Year

The British National Health Service (NHS) — the epitome of socialized medicine — may be prematurely ending the lives of as many as 130,000 elderly patients annually, a top physician told the Royal Society of Medicine in London. Patrick Pullicino, a consultant neurologist for East Kent Hospitals and professor of clinical neurosciences at the University of Kent, said a controversial end-of-life care method called the Liverpool Care Pathway (LCP) now used in British hospitals has become an “assisted death pathway rather than a care pathway,” according to a report in the Daily Mail.

“If we accept the Liverpool Care Pathway we accept that euthanasia is part of the standard way of dying as it is now associated with 29 per cent of NHS deaths,” Pullicino declared, referring to statistics showing that of the 450,000 annual deaths of patients under NHS care, about 130,000 are of patients who were on the LCP. ...

The standard of care is NOT higher now.
Now, hydration and nutrition are classed as medical procedures that can be withdrawn.
Previously, everyone understood that starving someone to death was murder.
Now even professing evangelical Christians are wilfully blind to what is going on.

I think there is a vast difference between assisted suicide and easing the suffering of someone who is terminally ill and who would die without medication anyway. We have to realize the standard of care is a lot higher now than it was hundreds of years ago, and it is only because of this we are now facing the dilemma of having to withdraw medication which could keep a person "alive" indefinitely. It's not a nice decision to have to make, but people do have to make it every day.

Not long ago when folks used a glass of wine to kill the pain, has now morphed into PCA morphine. A bit too much and you're dead.

"“16.5 percent of deaths in Britain resulted from continuous deep sedation — twice the rate of the Netherlands with its notorious culture of death and legalized euthanasia.”
Since that time the percentage of deaths due to the LCP has increased by 75 percent, with no signs of slowing.""

Aaah isn't it great to see a British industry on the up for a change.

These 'oldies' are living so much extra longer these days that it costs the tax-payer far to much these days. We can't have that can we. So the Doc bumps them off. Cheaper!

Quote from the Article for You Americans;

"No one should be surprised that government-run healthcare kills people. All socialist systems end up rationing whatever goods and services they have to offer; and when you’re rationing healthcare, the most vulnerable patients are going to suffer the most. The only surprising thing is that there are still people who think socialized medicine is a dandy idea — among them President Barack Obama, who said multiple times that he wanted a “single-payer universal healthcare program”; his Secretary of State...."

it happens in US all the time. upping pain meds, etc. families need to be the watchmen for each other instead of having a nanny state mentality.

it is tragic for so many so suffer syndromes, given liver destroying drugs when there are alternatives out there, readily available, mineral supplements being an obvious one.

we had a friend with "restless leg syndrome", we suggested to her that she may need more magnesium and minerals in her diet. She took said magnesium and ta-da, no more restless leg syndrome. umm, could we dare say, that she just had a nutritional deficiency???
