Quick question and a couple of points
I went to my GP today and said I want to put a DNR order in place for myself
May seem strange but as I’m coming up to 50 I want this in place because as we all know unless your about 25 or under, the chance of being as you were after resuscitation is quite slim!
Any GP suggested I should have an advance directive/living will as she said once in place it doesn’t need updating unlike a DNR
Only thing is how would anyone know you have an advanced directive unless you have a tattoo (which I won’t be doing)! Or maybe a bracelet?
Secondly I now understand that for example if you are at home or in a nursing home and you call 111 out of hours, the GP’s cannot access your advanced care plan or advanced directive!
So now I’m totally confused
