A shocking catalogue of hospital failings, including the case of an anorexic teen left to starve to death and former RAF pilot who was not told he had a brain tumour have been revealed in an in-depth study by the Patients’ Association.
The charity’s annual report said too many parts of the NHS have “lost their way” leaving patients to suffer from a lack of basic care, which compromised dignity and comfort, and put lives at risk.
It outlines detailed failings in the care of 14 patients, aged 19 to 94, with failures to diagnose and treat those suffering from life-threatening illness, and to provide food, drink or help getting to the toilet for the vulnerable elderly.
A shining vision of Jerusalem on the hill I tell you. No need to reform of change it in any manner whatsoever.
