LCP, Mid-staffordshire(s), Death Matters, Euthanasia

BlackCatVap

It is no secret that The Witch Doctor is no fan of the “Liverpool Care Pathway”, or indeed any of the “pathways” or “journeys” that patients are expected to stagger along nowadays.

She’s not keen on “tools” or “toolboxes” either.

And she loathes protocols because they make the people who tick the boxes witless.

She is totally and utterly against euthanasia or assisted suicide.

She also hates social engineering, especially when driven by governments.

It seems to The Witch doctor that the charity “Death Matters” started off as a social engineering outfit fuelled initially by the last labour government. It is an outfit fronted by the specialists in palliative medicine.

Maybe The Liverpool Care Pathway, the Mid-Staffordshires of the NHS, euthanasia and Death Matters are all intertwingled to a greater or lesser extent.

The NHS is unravelling and This Black Cat needs to get her head round it all.

For the life of her she can’t remember what The Witch Doctor has posted in the past about her scepticism about “a good death.”

So, there is some homework to be done before The Witch Doctor returns:

DEATH QUESTIONS

A COLLISION COURSE

THE EXIT BUSINESS AND DIRTY DYING

DYING – DOING IT THE GOVERNMENT’S WAY

THE SPIRIT OF CHARITY

HALLOWEEN AND THE DAY OF THE DEAD

POO AND TRIPLE SEVEN

THE MECHANICS OF DEATHLY CREEP

WE HAVE BEEN VERY PATIENT

THE EUTHANASIA OF A MEMBER OF MY FAMILY

THE ATHEIST HUMANIST PREDICAMENT OR NOT

THE SLIPPERY SLOPE

With a bit of luck, studying these posts will help This Black Cat make sense of these important Intertwinglements.
