Daily Mail - Online plan to let dying people share their wishes backed by Health Secretary
13 May 2019
The Health Secretary is backing a new online NHS scheme where people who are dying can share their wishes around treatment and care.
Matt Hancock welcomed the move towards giving chronically ill patients and those nearing death more control of what happens in an emergency, such as whether they would want to be resuscitated or if they wish to die at home.
The online plan, myCMC (my Co-ordinate My Care), enables details to be shared between care providers such as 111, out-of-hours GPs and the ambulance service.
Other details can include emergency contacts, a patient’s cultural or spiritual beliefs, whether they wish to donate their organs and whether they have a pet that needs to be cared for in an emergency.
