  • Comment on: Minister backs 'assisted dying' bid

    PS Just to be clear about my final sentence - that wasn't about any of the posts or posters here, it was an observation about what happens whenever assisted suicide/dying is debated anywhere.

    I suppose that it would in principle always be possible to create some type of technology, to allow any patient who could objectively communicate (even by eye movement) to self administer a terminal dose.

    But Tiger just pointed out that while the patient self administers, that isn't murder, is it?

    This debate always becomes very entrenched, very quickly. With the two sides seemingly totally unable to understand the others position.

  • Comment on: Helene Donnelly: 'Many staff across the UK are still too afraid to raise concerns'

    It is all too easy to pay lip service to this one: for Trusts to claim to support staff who raise concerns while still having policies in place, and an attitude, that discourage staff from raising concerns.

    In fact, the NHS is supposed to be responsive to variations in local needs, and there is a sort of expectation that best practice will spread (so there is room left for different regions/organisations to develop somewhat different practices).

    It isn't obvious that best practice is what always spreads, and it can get very messy indeed.

    If you two keep up this martial theme I'll be forced to send Bill round with his black pudding!
