Help to Save Haywood Hospital Hydro Pool

NASS Stoke on Trent need your support to help to save their hydrotherapy pool.

Sign the petition to help save the hydro pool at Haywood Hospital

Yet again a NASS branch finds itself without a hydrotherapy pool despite the known benefits to people with AS and a whole host of other conditions including other forms of arthritis, stroke and MS. The pool at Haywood Hospital in Stoke has been awaiting repairs for two years and there appears to have been no effort made on behalf of the trust to carry out these repairs, or look into ways of funding them. The decision has now been made to close the pool without a public consultation or consideration of the evidence.

NASS Stoke on Trent and a number of other of organisations are therefore asking for your support by signing their petition calling for the decision making process to be made public, and for the Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust to consider the views of patients and clinicians, as well as the evidence.
