Sadly it may be the medical authorities that are the instruction....

Very bad experience with my lat m-I-l after she had a massive stroke, was resuscitated by our daughter who had to break into the house, was delivered with a pulse and probable broken neck to A&E and they were trying to keep her alive even though a brain scan indicated virtually no living tissue.

Another daughter (a GP) arrived and was able to say "NO" with sufficient force that the medical staff backed off and simply supported her (my late m-i-l) for a further 3 hours as she declined and passed away.

Not the best experience - those are only the edited "low-lights" there was much more sadly....

We were fortunate that that daughter was able to apply humanity towards the situation.

Thinking of ALL the front line staff working to try to help others;Doctors, nurses, paramedics, cleaners, NA's, catering staff, support services and all others. Their work is appreciated more than you can ever realise-keep strong and safe.

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Remember Jo Cox and what she stood for.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.
