Motion text

That this House applauds the outstanding mental health services hitherto provided at Ellingham Ward Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) in Woodhaven Hospital and the excellent 24-hour support given at Crowlin House residential rehabilitation unit in the New Forest; deplores the so-called temporary closure of the former and the continuing threat to the future of the latter; notes that without Ellingham Ward, there would not have been enough PICU beds in the Trust area for 80 per cent. of the time; fears for the welfare of vulnerable residents currently in Crowlin House and for everyone who will need half-way house 24-hour care in future; and accordingly calls upon the Hampshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust to reopen Ellingham Ward, to restore its highly-skilled and dedicated staff team, and to remove the threat to Crowlin House immediately.
