where dyou hear this?

am now thinking of artificial feeding as meaning formula cos of work so that reads really odd

tis odd all the same to level at tube feeding. So many different reasons to. What a daft, sweeping statement

Where was that? Better close half the hospitals again. I'd better take out ds's insulin feed tube as it's obviously cruel to inject it into him every 3 days just to do something as unnecessary as keep him alive. angry

This was the hospice for terminally ill where my mum died, not in UK, but in EC. I might be wrong and there could be some local variation, but I believe hospice movement is run on a generally similar basis.
They told us this before admission.
