Henbury Parish Council has been alerted by Macclesfield MP, David Rutley, to the current proposal to transfer the last remaining adult inpatient mental health beds from Macclesfield to Chester.

Currently, mental health services for adults with acute mental health conditions are provided at the well-respected Millbrook Unit in Macclesfield. This is the site of the last remaining in-patient beds for adults with a range of mental health needs in East Cheshire.

There is a consultation ongoing, where the preferred option (option 2) would see the closure of the Millbrook Unit which would lead to patients and their families and friends having to travel 44 miles to access their nearest acute mental health ward.

Henbury Parish Council have registered their objection to this proposal. You can do the same by reading the proposals and completing the questionnaire here

You can also register to attend a public event to find out more on 23 May, 6.30pm — 9pm, Macclesfield Town FC, London Road, Macclesfield SK11 7SP

The consultation closes on 29th May.
