Ridge Lea Mental Hospital Plea!

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust is trying to sell off our local mental hospital to property developers and then build a whole new facility on a wholly inappropriate greenfield site, instead of properly redeveloping the existing location.

The reason is that, unlike the regular NHS, Foundation Trusts are run like a profit-generating business, and they know they can make more profit by selling off the existing location that actually fixing the problem at source. It's a classic case of "follow the money."

Please join me in signing this petition to bring this matter to the attention of the Prime Minister's office:

... and PLEASE forward this link on to as many people as you can. Don't let them get away with it!

We must ACT FAST as the petition closes on Tuesday 9th September!

Thank you!

    Whats wrong with the new place? why is it inappropriate?

    Yes, because if they don't sell the old location they can just magic money out of thin air.

    Looking at your 'concerns' on your website they seem to boil down to being a bunch of NIMBYs.

    A healthcare trust making money? Surely thats good, more money means more people treated?
