An official review by Baroness Neuberger is expected to be published next week, and is understood to be highly critical of aspects of the Liverpool Care Pathway system, according to The Telegraph.
Norman Lamb, the care minister, said: “Care for the dying is an emotive issue and it is not an easy subject to bring up. We all want our loved ones’ final hours of life to be as pain free and dignified as possible. And the thought that might not be happening is a frightening one."
