If it's the right thing, why don' t they tell the families?

One in four relatives 'not told when doctors place patient on controversial death pathway' - Telegraph.

My title seems a fair question to me. Concealing an action suggests (but I agree does not prove) that one feels it's wrong. More scarily;

The audit also found that more than one in three patients, 37 per cent, were given sedatives while on the pathway, although in most cases these were in low doses

Or to put it another way, 63% of patients being starved and/or dehydrated to death (in NHS Newspeak "put on a care pathway") by their NHS doctors are not given sedatives. Let's hope they get some pain relief at least while being humanely put down.
