COUNCIL DEVELOPMENT THREATENS WELLBEING OF HOSPICE PATIENTS. Ask Brent Council to stop their development plans now! Where will people go?
Brent Council plans to build a controversial new development just 10 metres from patient bedrooms, and just 5 metres from the patients' gardens (pictured above). St Luke’s has been serving our local community for over 30 years. Last year we provided specialist end of life care to 1,628 people in Harrow and Brent. Because of closure of beds at two neighbouring NHS Hospices we face a significant increase in demand for our care. The noise and dust from building work of this magnitude, so close to rooms where people at the end of their life are being cared for, will give us no choice but to close at least one third of our in-patient services when it’s needed most. With the wellbeing of our patients and their families in mind, we strongly object to the proximity of the proposed building to our hospice patients’ beds. People at the end of life need highly specialist care. If we are forced to close at least one third of the Hospice beds, where will people go? Today, we desperately need your help to protect our patients and defeat these plans. The badly planned proposed development is intended for people with learning difficulties. People who have passed away at the hospice are taken from a place that will be easily visible from parts of the new development. This may cause residents to witness scenes very distressing for them. It also violates the privacy of patients and their families. We need your support. Please tell the Planning Committee to stop their plans today! Please enter your postcode below to get started.
