Dr Knowles reported on the presentation of the first Schindler Prize by a trust founded by First Do No Harm, the Doctors Federation working group on euthanasia. She said “It was one of the happy occasions in 2010”. The prize honours Terri Schindler-Schiavo`s parents, who fought to save her life against intolerable opposition.

A worthy recipient was Susan Carnevale, Matron of a care home who attempted to save the lives of patients when they were considered to be of little value. She was subsequently dismissed.

Baroness Campbell. DBE, attended the prize giving at the Royal Society of Medicine in June 2010 before a supportive audience.
