Presented Petitions

Petition presented to the House but not read on the Floor

Ladycross House Local Authority Care Home

The petition of the residents of Erewash,

Declares that Ladycross House Local Authority Care Home, which serves the community of Sandiacre and surrounding area, provides an excellent, caring home for residents; and notes that a decision to close this care home will have significant negative consequences for residents, their families and staff, in addition to local NHS provision.

The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to press upon Derbyshire County Council to keep Ladycross House Local Authority Care Home open and, at the same time, design and implement a long-term plan for the care of elderly residents, not only in Erewash, but across the county of Derbyshire.

And the petitioners remain, etc.—[Presented by Maggie Throup.]
