Here is where your future cuts will come from.

snip-

Sick children are being discharged from NHS  hospitals to die at home or in hospices on controversial ‘death  pathways’.

Until now, end of life regime the Liverpool  Care Pathway was thought to have involved only elderly and terminally-ill  adults.

But the Mail can reveal the practice of  withdrawing food and fluid by tube is being used on young patients as well as  severely disabled newborn babies.

 

 

One doctor has admitted starving and  dehydrating ten babies to death in the neonatal unit of one hospital alone.

Writing in a leading medical journal, the physician  revealed the process can take an average of ten days during which a  baby  becomes ‘smaller and shrunken’.

The LCP – on which 130,000 elderly and  terminally-ill adult patients die each year – is now the subject of an  independent inquiry ordered by ministers

 

The investigation, which will include child  patients, will look at whether cash payments to hospitals to hit death pathway  targets have influenced doctors’ decisions.

Medical critics of the LCP insist it is  impossible to say when a patient will die and as a result the LCP death becomes  a self-fulfilling prophecy. They say it is a form of euthanasia, used to clear  hospital beds and save the NHS money.

Murdering medical monsters. Doing it the same way as the Nazis did it.
