Is it a surprise to anyone? We live in a country where hospital patients have to drink the water from flower vases. This is a crime against humanity, carried out by nurses, doctors and NHS adminstrators, but initiated by government ministers.

To use the word " care" in conjunction with the NHS is simply a joke. Malnutrition is only the tip of the iceberg - NHS staff are often offhand, dismissive, rude and confrontational, despite the fact that they are better paid than ever.
Of course that's where the money is going - to GPs who work short hours, "consultants" who dump all their work on juniors and nurses who don't nurse but have time to natter endlessly and loudly to each other., not to mention administrators who couldn't run a whelk stall.

why are the staff not charged with murder. if we did this at home to our family. we would be charged with murder. so why not the staff at the hospital. charge them all, if you do not know who the quilty one is.. this is a disgrace. it should not be let go just like that. several thousands since 1997. I didnt realize Britain was so bad. I understand from family and friends that English hospitals are not as good as they were years ago. but this , this is dreadful. A lot of hospitals around the world , used the British way of nursing., and they also went to Britain to learn tobecome a nurse. so what has happened to it. sad situation

Yet more cases of people going into hospital to be cured and instead being killed by the hospital.

Yep, its a massive conspiracy by nurses, doctors and other health professionals to murder tory voters.
Having worked on wards in the past, my experience is that a great many elderly patients actually choose to go without food and water. I witnessed this upsetting occurance numerous times where no matter how much the staff and family tried, the patient obviuosly had 'given up', and simply wasted away before our eyes. There is only so much you can do for a person so determined to end their life in such a way and for the Mail to insinute that all of the cases are the result of neglect is disgraceful.
