The campaign to save daycare at Hayward House is gathering force, as patients, volunteers, relatives and wellwishers are making contact and organising to work together.
Freedom of information requests have been made to find out more about the present/past, and about future plans. A website will be active shortly, and a paper petition is circulating. A web-based petition is intended. A meeting is planned for May.
Hayward House daycare is unique in the area, in that, alongside personal, social and emotional care, it also provides superb medical palliative care from a highly skilled team of doctors and nurses. Many patients have described how their pain had been unbearable, and was not treated effectively in an oncology ward, yet the doctors at Hayward House were able to do enough to bring quality of life back to their last months or weeks. Patients are naturally very upset and angry at the proposed closure, and this is doing their health no good.
Please print out and distribute and sign the petition, and contact me if you'd like to be involved in the campaign.
