UK’s NHS Causes Death by Dehydration

The hospital trust has issued an apology. (That is the only thing that will happen.) Grandmother died of THIRST on Maidstone hospital NHS ward | Daily Mail Online

Her family raised concerns about her dehydration with an agency nurse but they refused to give her a drink in case she wet the bed

Not an isolated incident.

The trust’s apology comes the same week as a coroner called for changes when a patient died after being denied a CT scan at Tunbridge Wells Hospital – because it was the weekend.
