Safeguard your NHS data. Urgent news from NPC.

Thank you to Sarah James outgoing Haringey Cabinet member for Adults and Health. Note that Sarah responded very quickly to the letter from Jan Shortt about the threat to Mary Feilding Guild Care Home.

Baroness Barran replied to Jan Shortt’s letter about Mary Feilding Care Home. However her advice is not helpful.

The National Pensioners Convention has published its horror that Mary Feilding Care Home has been closed and residents evicted.
