The decision to axe a controversial care pathway scheme has been labelled "illogical" by a senior end-of-life doctor.
Palliative care consultant Claud Regnard said scrapping the Liverpool Care Pathway - which recommends the withdrawal of treatment, food and water from some sedated patients in their final hours or days - is a "tragedy".
The decision to scrap the measure was made in July after an independent review concluded doctors had used the pathway "as an excuse for poor-quality care".
