Southern Cross Homes

Wednesday, June 29, 2011

In light of media interest in Southern Cross homes, and following up correspondence from a number of constituents, local MP Meg Munn visited one of the care homes in her constituency. She wanted to find out firsthand how staff and residents are feeling.


During her visit to Ascot Lodge Care Home, Meg met Area Manager for South Yorkshire, Andrew Dobson, and was taken on a tour of the facilities. Meg met residents, staff members and visitors to discuss Southern Cross’s current situation. There are five Southern Cross Homes in her constituency and Meg thought it was important to visit and learn.


There has been widespread coverage in the media about Southern Cross’s difficult financial situation. Sheffield’s Council have been working with Southern Cross and NHS Sheffield to ensure that residents and their families have information about the situation locally and nationally.


Meg said:


“I have been in close contact with Social Services and Southern Cross to keep up to date as the issues unfolded. I felt it was also important to visit the home and meet residents and staff to understand their feelings on what has been happening.


In Westminster I asked the Minister to explore the government’s legal position, what the back-stop is if the worst case scenario developed. I needed to know what he will do to reassure constituents that the government really will ensure that residents of the homes will not face changes that will dramatically affect their quality of life.”
