GP beds at risk in Much Wenlock – update 2

This is the second update on my campaign to maintain the GP beds at the Lady Forester Nursing Home in Much Wenlock. Updated information is now coming thick and fast

This morning I spoke on the BBC Radio Shropshire breakfast programme with Eric Smith and Clare Ashford and you can hear what I said at 2:19. This link will be in place until 22nd September.

I’ve also now had an exchange of views with Dr Wentel of Much Wenlock & Cressage Medical Practice who said “Your comments and summary regarding the history of the beds are really fantastic and I would whole-heartedly support them”. In respect of the threat, he went on to say “It would be the loss of a valuable resource were they to close, which in the current climate of trying to promote care in the community and avoiding hospital admission just doesn’t make long-term sense”.
