NHS England issues advice on DNACPR and people with learning disabilitiesNHS England issues advice on DNACPR and people with learning disabilities

NHS England and NHS Improvement have issued a letter making it clear that people should not have a DNACPR on their record just because they have a learning disability, autism or both. Blanket policies are inappropriate whether due to medical condition, disability, or age. This is particularly important in regard to DNACPR orders, which should only ever be made on an individual basis and in consultation with the individual or their family.
