That this House recognises the desperate need for palliative care provision in the Jarrow constituency after the sudden closure of St Clare's Hospice in 2019 after 30 years of service; believes there is a need to maintain, improve and fully fund all health services across South Tyneside; notes that St Clare's has been incredibly important to Jarrow and South Tyneside constituents even when faced with high demand; and calls for replacement palliative care provision within the Jarrow constituency.
Maybe someone might take it seriously but dont hold your breath. The real answer lies not with the St Clares issue in isolation but the provision of appropriate care accross the UK and how it might be funded.
