British Bishop of Kensington says: Let patients die to save money

The Bishop of Kensington, the Right Rev Graham Tomlin has said that keeping humans alive for too long is a “waste of money,” suggesting that doctors should let patients die in order to save NHS resources. Tomlin also says that for those who believe in the afterlife, death was “not the worst thing that could happen.”

“Christians believe in the possibility of a good death and so can set limits on the offering of care, believing that there comes a point when it is no longer wise or caring to prolong life. “Because Christians can look death in the eye as a defeated enemy, they do not regard the sustaining of life at any cost as the ultimate goal and this provides grounds for limits to healthcare spending while seeking to continue to offer the idea of healthcare for all.

According to The Times he said that the church should defend the NHS, citing the example of William Temple, the Archbishop of Canterbury from 1942 to 1944, who called for the creation of a welfare state. “Questions of costings, budgets, and decisions of how much treatment to fund and to whom are of course complex, and difficult to resolve,” the bishop wrote adding that the NHS “is potentially a bottomless pit, and some limits need to be set on healthcare spending”. Asked for examples of when prolonging life was not the best course of action, he said: “I do not support the practice of euthanasia or any deliberate shortening of life. And . . . I am certainly not saying that a belief in the resurrection will enable the NHS to save money.

“My point is that there have been a number of recent cases, such as Alfie Evans or Charlie Gard, where doctors have taken the view that nothing more can really be done to prolong life and therefore decided to withdraw attempts to sustain life at all costs and that is difficult for parents and carers. Letting go of those who are dying is difficult, and a belief in a life beyond this one can help people do this.”

He also wrote that the power of healing through prayer should be embraced by the NHS, arguing that examples of miraculous healing are “rare but real”. The bishop, who serves in west London, has spoken separately of the need to reform the housing sector so that homes are seen as places of shelter and community, not commodities.

About the Author

With almost twenty years spent researching and treating Cancer, I am a well respected author, teacher and health coach.

I do have a list of qualifications, but I find them cumbersome and false. The fact I am a qualified Holistic Doctor is neither here, nor there. Medical education is entirely corrupt and something that can be used against you. I go on courses in order to learn, not to buy a badge to hide behind, or a stick to beat people with.

So much nonsense has been written about me that I never read, or choose to absorb. It’s all about them, never about me. I have been attacked and targeted simply because I have helped people and not been silenced. A common misconception is that I am holistic, but the truth is I do not sit on either side of the imaginary divide between what is “mainstream” and what is “holistic.” There is greed and corruption on both sides and examples of bad practice in every field.
Personally, I am only interested in what works and improves the life of the patient.

In some cases, radiation can work and so am happy to recommend that route, if it works and saves a life in an emergency situation. But there is no ‘one size fits all’ and no cookie cutter protocol. There are many variables in healing the body. We are all individual and all capable of change, so each case must be considered individually. What works for one, may not work for another. Mass medication is wrong.
My research and work has led me all over the world and got me into some tight spots at times, but I am thankful for every twist and turn and have learned a lot from each. I am wiser as a result and see that life teaches us all. I recovered from breast cancer 20 years ago, which has saved my life over and over and made me very aware of how fleeting and precious life is. I live each day to the full and as if it were my last.
I have twenty children, many of whom are adopted, four are mine naturally. I love and adore them all and am honored to have been able to raise them, for now they are strong and independent adults. My children are the most important people in my life.

I despise materialism, I have old fashioned views and feel the modern world has lost much in the way of values and common decency. So I travel the world with my partner and 6-year-old daughter, helping people and sharing knowledge. I am still learning and feel that everyday is a school day. The reason I started this blog was so I could pass on some of this knowledge to others.

I speak the truth about everything and my honest approach shocks many, as I tend to say the things most people would not. I focus on solutions, as I am a problem solver at heart and there is only one truth. Stick to the truth and you will never go far wrong.
