Britain’s state-funded doctors are early ending the lives of thousands of senior hospital patients because they are difficult to manage or to free up beds, a senior consultant claimed yesterday.
Professor Patrick Pullicino said doctors had turned the use of the sinister state-sponsored ‘Death Pathway’ into state-sponsored euthanasia of the elderly.
He claimed there was often a lack of evidence for initiating the Liverpool Care Pathway, a method of looking after terminally ill patients now in use in hospitals across the country. The highway to hell or heaven is designed activated when under pressure doctors allege it impossible for a patient to recover and death is imminent.
As they approach retirement Britons and their families are apprehensive about ending up on the highway to death. This is the Westminster regime and their media that untruthfully claimed Hitler’s Germany practiced euthanasia.
There are around 450,000 British deaths each year of people who are in a hospital or under NHS care. Around 29 per cent, 130,000 are of luckless elderly persons who had been placed on the notorious Liverpool Care Pathway’.
Professor Pullicino claimed that far too often elderly patients who could live longer are placed on the highway, which had turned into an ‘assisted death pathway rather than a care pathway’. He cited pressure on beds and difficulty with nursing confused or difficult-to-manage elderly patients as factors.
Professor Pullicino revealed he had personally intervened to take a patient off the highway of death who went on to be successfully treated. He said this showed that claims they had hours or days left are profoundly false.
He told of a 71-year-old who was admitted to hospital suffering from pneumonia was put on the pathway by a covering doctor on a weekend shift. Professor Pullicino said he had returned to work after a weekend to find the patient unresponsive and his family upset because they had not agreed to place him on the death highway.
“I removed the patient from the Liverpool Care Pathway despite significant resistance,” he said. “The patient’s seizures came under control and four weeks later he was discharged home to his family.”
Professor Pullicino, a consultant neurologist for East Kent Hospitals, was speaking to the Royal Society of Medicine in London. He said: “The lack of evidence for initiating the Liverpool Care Pathway makes it an assisted death pathway rather than a care pathway.
Many elderly patients who could live substantially longer are being killed off by the LCP. Patients are frequently put on the pathway without a proper analysis of their condition. “Predicting death in a time frame of three to four days, or even at any other specific time, is not possible scientifically.”
“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.”
Experts including Peter Millard, emeritus professor of geriatrics at the University of London, and Dr. Peter Hargreaves, palliative care consultant at St Luke’s cancer centre in Guildford, Surrey, warned of ‘backdoor euthanasia’ and the risk that economic factors were being brought into the treatment of vulnerable patients.
In the example of the 71-year-old, Professor Pullicino revealed he had given the patient another 14 months of life by demanding the man be removed from the LCP. After 14 months of extra life, the patient was admitted to a different hospital with pneumonia and put on the LCP. The man died five hours later.
