St Margaret's Hospice have announced plans to close their in-patient unit in Yeovil and move the services to Taunton.
Yeovil Liberal Democrats believe that with the expansion of Yeovil and an aging population that hospice services are more important than ever for the town. This closure would mean that families with relatives receiving palliative care would have to go as far as Taunton in what can be a very stressful time for a family.
We the undersigned call on the Somerset Clinical Commissioning Group and the Somerset Partnership NHS Foundation Trust to provide funding to ensure that St Margaret's Hospice can continue to provide excellent in-patient services in Yeovil.
We will include your name and address when submitting the petition to Somerset Clinical Commissioning Group and the Somerset Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.
