The Department does not hold information on individual Do Not Attempt Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (DNACPR) decisions at specific National Health Service trusts. Concerns about individual DNACPR decisions should be raised with the health or care provider involved in the first instance.

The Care Quality Commission continues to ensure providers understand their responsibilities should allegations of inappropriate application of DNACPR decisions be made, as well as raise cases with the relevant bodies as appropriate.
