I Look Forward To The Outrage….

So, for the last few months, we’ve been regaled with stories from disability campaigners warning that ‘the vicious Tory government cuts’ were driving the population to despise the disabled, regard them all as ‘scroungers’ and abuse them in the street.

Turns out, though, the biggest danger was our ‘world class NHS’:
An NHS hospital is being sued by a family who say doctors placed a "do not resuscitate" order on their relative, denying him potentially life-saving treatment, because he has Down's syndrome.
The unnamed family are bringing a legal challenge against a hospital in Kent where a doctor apparently decided staff should make no attempt to resuscitate the patient if he suffered cardiac or respiratory arrest, on the basis of his disability.
No, they didn’t discuss any of this with the family, as they should have done, nor with the patient either. They just went ahead and did it.

Because, *shrug* he’s not a real person, is he?

Not that they wouldn’t be quite happy to do it to your grandmother or your child, too.
East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust said it could not comment on the case for legal reasons, but said it had "put a great deal in place in recent years to meet the needs of vulnerable patients" and had signed up to the Mencap charity's "Getting it right" charter on helping those with learning disability.
I wonder what it is they think ‘Getting It Right’ actually means..?

And are we going to see the disability rights campaigns switch focus? Maybe start chaining themselves to ambulances instead of buses?

Obstructing A&E departments, rather than benefits offices?

If not…why not?

This is a wider scandal that hasn't been investigated by Mainstream Media and has only lightly been reported by t'internet.

As far as I'm aware, EVERY resident of a care home was quietly given a DNR by GPs during the pandemic. My wife works in care. During the pandemic the first thing the ambulance service asked when one was requested for a resident was "do they have a DNR?"
Families were not informed. Care homes only became aware as they dealt with the NHS on a regular basis.
There are stories across the internet and around the care sector of grandparents or children with learning disabilities left to die on wards with minimal or no treatment.
Of course no-one, not ever carers or family were allowed into hospitals to be with residents so their treatment could not be monitored.
From what it seems very early on in the pandemic our government saw what was happening in Italy and how doctors had to decide who got care and who didn't as their health service was overwhelmed. The wholesale writing of DNRs was done to help ease the burden on the NHS.
The thing is, have those DNRs been rescinded now the pandemic is over, or are they still in place. Are the sick, elderly and disabled still at risk of being denied care?
