Williton Hospital Bed Closures

The Somerset Clinical Commissioning Group has decided to close 6 stroke beds at Williton hospital as a result of the perceived success of Early Supported Discharge (ESD) of patients.  The League of Friends of the hospital are bitterly opposed to this action at a time when hospital beds are badly needed with winter approaching and bed blocking at Musgrove Park Hospital.  We are intending to fight this decision and are asking all those who care about patients and the availability of beds for those in need to support us in our campaign to save these beds. I can be contacted either by email or by letter care of the hospital

Thank you

The Clinical Commissioning Group have been asked to attend a Scrutiny Committee meeting at West Somerset Council on 15th December at 3.30pm.  Anyone can attend so can you spread the word as the more support we can get the better
