David Morris, Conservative MP in Morcambe, is showing his ‘support’ for the NHS by calling for a local GP to be sacked for discussing end-of-life care in the same honest and compassionate manner that we GPs have to do day in and day out.

Dr Andrew Knox, General Practitioner provided a training video on YouTube regarding the conversations that need to be had with regards to what can be expected in end-of-life care. These require compassionate and nuanced understanding of vulnerable people. The full video can be viewed here

Morris prefers to go to the Daily Mail with a story of ‘uncaring controversial doctor’. As usual doctors continue to prop up massively underfunded service ( a policy championed by this MPs Conservative government for nearly a decade) while politicians are interested only in self publicising and re-election. This is his conribution to the NHS

The so-called 'fury' is only that of the impotent and irrelevant desperate for attention i.e. Morris and his type. Unfortunately the gutter press are all too eager to help provide publicity to help their own failing relevance in this new reality.

Happily there are some publications that are supporting the real heroes in our current crisis

but we need wider publicity. Show what you think of this kind of behaviour and demand a full public apology or the resignation of David Morris.


The public deserve better than the politicians who we’ve ended up with - corrupt, self serving, uncaring of the public, uninterested in the truth and unapologetic of their disastrous decisions. A Conservative government that has weakened health care and social care and forced thousands of health/social workers to quit over the last decade, while forcing millions of adults and children into poverty in their perverted obsession with‘austerity’ policies ( none of which have affected them personally). The obsession with the EU has resulted in actual issues being ignored year after year. The failure to act as the pandemic struck and the constant dithering from the Department of Health, in conjunction with the inability to provide screening services for frontline staff, this Government has endangered and cost thousands of lives. And this so-called public official dares to smear a hardworking GP trying to provide the best care he can within a system. SHAME ON YOU MORRIS.
Sign now, support the NHS and don’t let David Morris get away with this
