On Thursday 3rd April I visited the Felix Post Unit in the Maudsley Hospital.
The South London and Maudsely Trust are formally consulting users, carers and other stakeholders to gather their views about the proposed changes to the Felix Post Unit. The consultation takes place until the 23rd April 2008. If you wish to read the consultation it can be found at http://www.southwark.gov.uk/Uploads/FILE_32556.pdf
The Felix Post Unit is a unique example of mental health care for older people, it is clear from the letters I have received from my constituents that it is an innovative unit run by dedicated staff. I am concerned about what will happen to the 30 people who use the unit every day.
I continue to back moves by patients and unions to support the service provided by the Felix Post Day Unit.
