Petition Reinstate Samares Ward to its full complement of 28 beds and previous services.
The rehabilitation ward has been reduced from 28 beds to just 12 beds and the services offered greatly reduced. This is not in line with the National Clinical Guidelines for stroke rehabilitation. Ensure that the new hospital reinstates the full services within it which we previously had in place.
According to the data from the National Clinical Guidelines for stroke rehabilitation, Jersey can expect a minimum of 250 people presenting with stroke symptoms each year, this is without taking into account the patients who have head trauma, prosthetic limbs or any other type of trauma which requires extended care. Our HCS management have reduced our bed numbers and the care package given by way of physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, dieticians etc to an unacceptable level.
