For the second time, I present a petition about a matter that I raised during the debate on the Adjournment. My friend Kate Hoey also raised it. Mr. Vara warmly recognised that it was an important issue, and the Deputy Leader of the House referred to it.
I last did this job on
I therefore have many more signatures from people who are residents of the London boroughs of Southwark, Lambeth, Croydon, Lewisham and others.
The petition states:
The Petition of the London Boroughs of Southwark, Lambeth, Croydon, Lewisham and others declares the Petitioners' serious concerns about the decision to close the 24 hour emergency mental health clinic at the Maudsley Hospital, Denmark Hill in Camberwell.
The Petitioners further declare their anxiety that new replacement facilities at King's College Hospital will not be ready for a further 18 months and that even then they may not constitute an adequate replacement.
The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urge the Secretary of State for Health to postpone the full closure of the 24 hour emergency mental health clinic until the incoming Prime Minister and Health Ministers have an opportunity to review the situation.
To lie upon the Table.
