Save the elderly ladies from the Pentland ward at the REH
This petition has been set up to help save the elderly ladies from the Pentland ward at the Royal Edinbugh Hospital.
The ward us the ONLY all lady ward for ladies with dementia. The HNS are looking to relocate these ladies, in community facilities across Edinburgh. Including Ferryfield House and Findlay House.
The NHS says it's part of a major redevelopment work at the Morningside facility. However families of the elderly ladies feel that It’s being presented as a care decision when in fact it is about closing beds.
The new places they have suggested are just not the environment we would want our mothers to be in. They are simply farming them out.”
It is understood that the site will be used to provide care for patients from Myreside ward, a neighbouring unit for men with early onset dementia.
