Deaths Following Residential Home Closures

EDM number 2251 in 2010-12, proposed by John McDonnell on 13/10/2011.
Categorised under the topics of Death, Elderly people and Health services.

That this House notes with deep concern the worsening crisis for elderly care as growing numbers of local authority and private care homes face closure; acknowledges concerns that the loss of elderly people's care homes causes fear, anxiety and, in many cases, a higher mortality rate when vulnerable, elderly people are forced to leave their homes; further notes that the Southern Cross crisis will increase the need for local authority care; and therefore calls on the Government to hold a public inquiry into the deaths followingclosures of local authority care homes and impose a moratorium on the closure of local authority care homes until that inquiry publishes its results to ensure that vulnerable, elderly people's lives are not put at further risk.

This motion has been signed by a total of 30 MPs.
