Protection Of The Elderly In Nursing Homes

EDM number 1967 in 2005-06, proposed by Lorely Burt on 18/04/2006.

That this House notes the closure of the Maypole Nursing Home in Birmingham in 2003 and the subsequent decision of the General Medical Council in January 2006 to strike off the two GPs who owned the home from the medical register for `inappropriate, irresponsible and inadequate behaviour' after the death in just one year of 28 elderly people at the home, the owners having certified that 80 per cent. of these deaths were from bronchopneumonia despite a lack of any medical records or other evidence in support; as a consequence urgently calls for the Government to ensure that the chances of such events occurring again be minimised by outlawing the practice of GPs having a financial interest in nursing homes to which they allocate patients from their own lists; and further calls on the Government to implement without further delay the recommendations of the Shipman Inquiry Third Report July 2003 relating to certification of deaths by the coroner's service and random audit of death certificates to ensure accuracy of recording.

This motion has been signed by a total of 60 MPs.
