Relief that care home will be saved

Have your say

There was a feeling of guarded relief for residents at Banbridge’s Crozier House, following an announcement by the Health Minister that they will no longer be forced to leave.

Crozier House was one of 18 NHS care homes in Northern Ireland that was earmarked for closure, but on Friday April 18 Edwin Poots met with residents to tell them the homes are to remain open ‘for as long as they wish and so long as their needs can continue to be met there’.

Residents are concerned however that the Health Minister has as yet failed to clarify the future admission policy, fearing it may lead to eventual closure of the homes.
