82 Year Old survived NHS ‘care pathway’ execution, went on cruise.

I’m finding old emails this morning by checking back over the last few weeks.  Here’s another one which appears to have been missed.

David Turnbull sent –



Her devastated family had been told Patricia Greenwood was dying.
Doctors at the hospital had removed all feeding tubes and drips and placed the 82-year-old grandmother on the Liverpool Care Pathway. Her children and grandchildren were told to say their last goodbyes.
But they said no. And after they defied hospital orders and gave Mrs Greenwood drops of water, her family helped her make a remarkable recovery.

Within hours, Mrs Greenwood was eating and drinking for herself and is now back at home and proud to call herself a Liverpool Care Pathway survivor. The former singer and pub landlady is planning to go on a world cruise, looking after her great-grandchildren at home and will attend her son-in-law’s 50th birthday party this weekend.
The hospital concerned has been paid more than £600,000 in the last two years to hit targets for the number of patients who die on the Pathway, according to documents uncovered by the Mail.

    This is the will to live. The patient had the will to live, and so did her family. That strength of focus was enough to heal her.
    Many of the things that go wrong in hospitals are due to the experts deciding the outcome before it happens. If people accept the expert opinion, the they start behaving as if it’s going to happen that way. That focus of energy on that particular outcome gives it a much higher chance of happening.
    People usually have cancer because they are told they have cancer.

    31.12.2012 front news item in a leading paper 60.000 people a year has had this done to them. One of the scum bags in government hailing this as a great success what i don’t understand is why so many people bury their heads in the sand. This will not stop them getting a kick to the butt or a bullet up their ass.Why are people so blind,look what they put in every thing we eat or drink also the medication they give or deny which helps to make us ill in the first place ephona
