To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, pursuant to the Answer of 28 September to Question 51861 on DNACPR Decisions: Coronavirus, if he will make it his policy to collate data on (a) investigations and (b) prosecutions relating to Do Not Attempt Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation decisions.

There are no plans to do so. Concerns about individual Do Not Attempt Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (DNACPR) decisions should be raised with the health or care provider involved in the first instance. NHS England and NHS Improvement have also published patient-facing information if individuals or their families are concerned about a DNACPR.
