Saving Deeside Care Home Petition

Response from Hampshire County Council, November 2013

The responses to this petition will be included as part of the consultation in relation to the proposed closure of Deeside and will be carefully considered and examined by the Cabinet before a collective decision is made about the future of the home on Monday 9 December.

Prior to the above Cabinet decision, a pre-scrutiny meeting will be held on Friday 22 November when the Cabinet report will be reviewed by the Safe and Healthy Select Committee to consider the appropriateness of the proposals being made to Cabinet.  Meetings of Select Committees are open to the public, but this is not when the decision about the future of the homes will be made.

Please be assured that regardless of the decision that Cabinet makes, the County Council will continue to be responsible for the safety and wellbeing of residents; ensuring their care needs are fully met whether this be at Deeside or an alternative home or care setting.
