Liverpool Care Pathway independent review underway

16th January 2013

Crossbench peer Baroness Julia Neuberger has been appointed to chair the independent review into how the Liverpool Care Pathway (LCP) – branded by some critics as euthanasia by the back door - is being used.

The Senior Rabbi at the West London Synagogue and former chief executive of the King’s Fund will oversee the review, which will examine various elements of the LCP, including the experience and opinions of patients, families and health professionals; hospital complaints; local payments made to hospitals in respect of the LCP; and the evidence base about its benefits and limitations.
