Man with Down’s Syndrome dies as hospital leaves him without food for 20 days


This should be unbelievable, but is it?

Where is the care in our, so called, Society, it appears that it is just another ‘word’ that is not put into practice.

Is our Health Service so fragmented that, specialists health care professionals are unable to understand the basics of nutrition.

Surely with so many professions within the care of Joe, that, not one of them could see, or even understand, that food or some other form of nutrition was not being given to Joe.

Was he not monitored, or did everyone involved in his, so called, care believe it was the responsibility of someone else.

What does this say of the 21st century health care in Manchester, more like 16th century. The care for Joe would have been better in the 3rd World.

There are targets for this, targets for that and targets for the other, so many targets.

Are there too many targets, that these targets are getting in the way of basic health care?
