Dying the Liverpool way is not the way to go. There is a lot about the NHS here that is great, but the Liverpool pathway is about the worst.

I have had nothing but excellent care in our NHS, but even apart from the LCP it certainly needs fixing. There is a huge scandal going on at the moment with failing hospitals. You would think by now after 50 years of the NHS we would have got it right by now.

I did half a nurse training course in 1972 and there was never the problems we have now. Nurses now are accused of "not caring" and their mindset seems to have changed. It is a sad situation. That is not the only thing wrong. Patients are more likely to die in hospitals at weekends because there is just a minimum staffing level. (I was going to use the term skeleton staff!). Hopefully the situation that has come to light with failing hospital and needless death rates due to poor care, low morale, etc., will be rectified.

Our next election is early summer 2015 (we have five year terms as opposed to your four year terms). Our government is trying now for a fix of the NHS because all eyes are on them for the next election.
