Save Cheadle Community Hospital

Reason for signing

  • Shutting down community hospitals creates the bed blocking. It hasn't worked in South Wales or in Glos. The hospitals are vital to have short term low tech but high quality care as interim care before being discharged home. They are cheaper than bed blocking and cheaper and far better than keeping a patient in a large hospital and expensive acute bed, that caters well for the masses, the community hospitals cater for the individual. They can give the patients the TLC they need before going home
