On Tuesday in the House of Commons Mr Tony Lloyd MP Ask questions about Edale House Closing
It is a great pleasure to follow Mr Evennett, who takes great pride in his suburb. In the same way, people in Manchester have enormous pride in what our city is all about. That is why I wanted to raise two important local issues today. First, the Edale unit, which is a secure mental health unit, is currently located in the central Manchester hospital. Manchester Mental Health and Social Care trust specifically had the unit designed only a few years ago as part of a private finance initiative in that hospital. The strategic health authority gifted the trust some £16 million for the project, but only four years on, the trust has decided that it wants to abandon the unit and move its facilities elsewhere. The trust proposes to move the unit to Park House—the site of the North Manchester hospital. By all accounts, that decision is perplexing.
