- Pensioners were given the ‘Do Not Resuscitate’ notices against their wishes
- Now NHS England plans to give everyone aged over 65 a ‘national frailty score’
- The new programme involves a ‘geriatric assessment’, sometimes by phone
These four pensioners are bravely fighting back against a draconian NHS policy that sees over-65s assessed for frailty and handed notices saying they will be denied resuscitation if they suffer a heart attack or stop breathing.
…All too often it seems these orders have been handed out secretly by NHS staff without the patient’s consent or even their knowledge.
