Background

This petition has been established by Councillor Mike Brindle. It calls upon Norfolk County Council to keep Priorsmead Care Home open. The home at Canterbury Way, Thetford, has been placed under review by Norse Care - a care company set up and owned by Norfolk County Council. An eight-week consultation began late in August. Residents have been told that if the proposal to close the home goes ahead they could remain living in the area close to family and friends. However it is understood that no specific promises have been made because it depends what places are available nearby at the point when it may close. Priorsmead closes. Just recently a national report revealed that in excess of 71,000 new care home places are needed to cope with the population growing older – so it seems particularly ill-advised to close down a care home rated as “good” recently. We call upon Norfolk County Council to thoroughly review the the feasibility of keeping Priorsmead open and consider all options. Should closure go ahead, thought must be given to the future use of the site - we do not want a Cottage Hospital #2!

This petition will be presented to Norfolk County Council by Mike Brindle following the closure of the official consultation conducted by Norse Care. The personal details contained within will not be shared with any third party and will be stored securely to protect sensitive data.

    The residents needs should come before profit.

    This is not a time to be closing a CQC underwritten care facility in this already socially deprived town. Rather a time to expand the service contrary to NCC's continuing negative mindset.

    Please allow the care home to stay open while these elderly and vulnerable people live out their natural life with the excellent care and support given by the dedicated staff. This is their "HOME".
