Reporting concerns about the Liverpool Care Pathway
Find out which organisation to contact if you are a member of staff at a health or social care service and want to report a concern about the Liverpool Care Pathway.
The Liverpool Care Pathway (LCP) is intended to alleviate suffering for people with terminal illnesses or those close to death.
The staff treating the patient must work together as a team to determine when it is appropriate to implement the LCP. They must make this decision with the patient and those close to them.
The relevant regulators need to be informed if any person believes that the LCP has been inappropriately implemented.
Report a concern
You can contact us if you have any concerns about the way a member of staff has implemented the LCP. Email us at email@example.com or call us on 03000 616161.
You may also want to call the organisations below.
- The Nursing and Midwifery Council where your concerns are about a registered nurse or midwife which may call into question his or her fitness to practise.
- The Health and Care Professions Council where your concerns are about another registered member’s performance or conduct.
