...and there may be hundreds more...

Recommended Posts

It appears that a hospital in Gosport has been practising euthanasia for quite a while using opioid drugs to bump off elderly patients while a dodgy doctor was happy to sign the death certificates.  456 confirmed & there may be  hundreds more patients who have been murdered in the hospital. Serious charges should be awaiting someone.

Actually thought this was normal practise for terminal cases; saves pain and saves money.    Having just seen the news report, it appears these were not "terminal cases", which suggests it's a Police matter - shades of Dr Shipman.

It looks like this has been known about throughout the medical set up concerned at the hospital ,from top to bottom.

It is amazing though that the local registrar has not detected a spike of deaths at the hospital.

The issue was raised (internally) by some of the nurses,  but they were fobbed off by management. It seems the best thing to do is whistle blow to the press and politicians, as and when it happens.

As reported on the - BBC News Website.

More than 450 patients died after being given powerful painkillers inappropriately at Gosport War Memorial Hospital, a report has found.An independent panel said, taking into account missing records, a further 200 patients may have suffered a similar fate.The report found there was a "disregard for human life" of a large number of patients from 1989 to 2000.It said Dr Jane Barton oversaw the practice of prescribing on the wards.

There was an "institutionalised regime" of prescribing and administering "dangerous" amounts of a medication not clinically justified at the Hampshire hospital, the report said.

Who is the doctor who actively shortened her patients' lives?

Dr Jane Ann Barton, now aged 70, graduated from Oxford University in 1972 as a Bachelor of Medicine.

She became a GP and worked at Forton Medical Centre in Gosport, and was employed for five sessions a week as a clinical assistant in the Department of Medicine for Elderly People at Gosport War Memorial Hospital from 1 May 1988 until her resignation on 5 July 2000.
