Scotland to phase out Liverpool Care Pathway


It was the word 'pathway' in conjunction with end-of-life that the Neuberger Review disliked - so if 'pathway' will be dropped as a term in England for EoLC, its continued use in Scotland could potentially cause confusion. Mind you, I'm not all that keen on 'plan' either (which is the suggested alternative 'moniker', admittedly for a longer timeframe than the LCP covered).
