Care Home Closures In Cumbria

EDM number 2397 in 2010-12, proposed by Tony Cunningham on 08/11/2011.
Categorised under the topics of Elderly people and Health services.

That this House notes with deep concern the worsening crisis for elderly care as growing numbers of local authority 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; calls on the Government to hold a public inquiry into the deaths following closures of local authority care homes; and further calls on Cumbria County Council to halt its consultation on the closure of Park Lodge, Richmond Park and Woodlands 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 17 MPs.
