Review of Liverpool Care Pathway with families and carers1st March 2013
Sessions that could shape the future use of the Liverpool Care Pathway for Dying Patients are set to be held by Baroness Julia Neuberger.
She will be with families and carers to listen to their experiences of the Liverpool Care Pathway (LCP) in Leeds on 20 March and Preston on 16 May with details of further sessions published as soon as they become available.
Liverpool Care Pathway independent review: Public call for evidence was launched on 16 February 2013 and is open to members of the public invited to share their experiences of it - both good and bad.
They will form part of an independent review being chaired by Baroness Neuberger, who is Senior Rabbi at the West London Synagogue and former Chief Executive of the King’s Fund.
The review is also asking for submissions from professionals, either as individuals or from organisations.
The views will feed into the independent review of the pathway, which was announced in November 2012 by Care and Support Minister Norman Lamb to investigate concerns that were raised, particularly around accounts of the withdrawal of foods and fluids from dying patients, and the use of financial incentives.
The closing date for responses is 5 April.
