The majority of hospitals in England are being given financial rewards for placing terminally-ill patients on a controversial “pathway” to death, it can be disclosed.

Almost two thirds of NHS trusts using the Liverpool Care Pathway have received payouts totalling millions of pounds for hitting targets related to its use, research for The Daily Telegraph shows.

The figures, obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, reveal the full scale of financial inducements for the first time.

Yep - from here in the UK we see the false claims made with regard to our NHS and wish you well in your fight against ObamaCare. we are forced to pay for this monster, which delivers lousy service, with arrogant high-handed staff, and now we learned they’re actually getting bonuses for killing us. Death panels are a reality, socialised health care - like all socialism - is intrinsically evil.

” What was that about death panels again?”

No such thing as death panels in countries with universal health care or Obamacare! Right wing lies! Only private insurance companies have death panels! Stop watching Faux news! /s
