The self-righteous GP Howard Martin should definitely be locked up. This old tosser claiming “Christian compassion” for bumping off patients stains the profession. The Knife is well aware that many patients succumb to morphine based drugs given in necessary doses to relieve pain and distress – fine. Dr Martin’s intention to kill – on his own say so – is totally different. Only yesterday an elderly dialysis patient told me he had “a lot of living to do” and so didn’t want to risk a major operation, although his quality of life is on the face of it, dreadful.
Martin should have the book thrown at his deluded smug face. At least Harold Shipman didn’t claim to be doing good..
