Dear Department of Health,

Thank you for your time. I would like to know how many patients in the UK over the past 3 years have asked or have had a DNR (Do not resuscitate) applied to their medical records.

If it is possible to have this broken down by region/county
if able to be provided, can ages and genders also be supplied for these patients.

Yours faithfully,

Adam Eeles

Department of Health, Department of Health and Social Care
