Save our care homes

Care home campaign updatesThis page updates on our campaign to against the closure of four Edinburgh care homes with a fifth being switched from residential care to hospital-based complex clinical care.  Scotland’s care system already relies too heavily on homes that are run for profit. Edinburgh can buck that trend by supporting Council-run care homes that focus on providing quality care not the making of money.
