Medical examiners to review all deaths from 2018


Hello Mrs Brown, I'm Quincy ME. Sorry for your loss. Now, I see Mr Brown lived to 104 and died in bed yesterday. Your GP has listed his cause of death as 1a) Old Age. Are you happy with that? No, I wouldn't be either. Refused a late had visit once in 1987, you say? Shocking, truly shocking. And despite all these medicines for blood pressure and angina I can see, you say you never saw the same doctor twice? Dear me. Sounds like a shocking bit of malpractice to me. Now, if you'll just sign here, here and here, we can arrange for a postmortem, launch a formal complaint to the GMC and a medical negligence case all in one handy form. No, you aren't causing a fuss. Well, we better see to it that Dr Rabbit-Headlight isn't able to butcher other Centenarians in their pyjamas by filling them full of Ramipril, hadn't we? It's about protecting other people like your husband, who was so badly let down. Sign here. And here. Have a tissue. There there.
