  1. This is disgraceful that some doctors in the UK are placing the DNR notices on some disabled patients records be they with or without consent, for bullying or placing persons in a place where they feel they are under pressure is not consent, even if they say so, because some form coercion had been placed on them.

    The doctors doing this are acting illegally and I would really wish to know if this is with or without the consent or knowledge of their employers, the hospitals within which they work and is it common practice within the UK.

    I feel the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Matt Hancock needs to comment on this the numerous CEOs of the Hospitals within the UK.

    As a Family Carer for my disabled daughter I am appalled at this practice.
