Cheshire East: Save The Millbrook Unit
We the undersigned believe that the Millbrook Unit provides an absolutely vital service to the people of Cheshire East.
We therefore call on Cheshire East Council and the UK government to provide the funding it requires and deserves in order that it may remain open and able to serve the people of Cheshire East.
This petition seeks to have the issue debated in full council.
Why is this important?
The proposed closure of the Millbrook Unit has serious implications for the health and wellbeing of thousands of Cheshire East residents across the entire borough and threatens to damage the lives and treatment of so many.
Government and council funding cuts have left our local health services stretched to the max, with mental health provision now dangerously poor.
The closure of the Millbrook Unit would mean patients and families having to drive over an hour to access the care and treatment they so desperately need and deserve in Chester or on the Wirral.
At a time when we are facing a crisis in mental health, we cannot allow this to happen.
