They can be even more disastrous than the controversial Liverpool Care Pathway they replaced, an expert claims.

Professor Patrick Pullicino, a leading critic of the Liverpool Care Pathway, said the latest proposals from the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence were ‘totally wrong and very misleading’ on the crucial subject of patient hydration.
