A Mandatory SAR for 'Eric' was published in October 2020 and written by independent author Professor Michael Preston-Shoot.
Eric lived a full and active life, but experienced depression as he got older. He took to his bed, refusing food, water, care or treatment. At the point he was deemed as lacking Mental Capacity, he was transferred to hospital but passed away there shortly after at 81 years old, with a cause of death of starvation.
Review themes include:
- Mental Capacity
- Mental Health
- Needs of the family/main carer giver
