This petition is to try and save the McCallum ward at Torbay hospital, it's the only womans ward/ unit within Torbay . Woman who may have suffered the loss of a baby, a hysterectomy, Eptopic pregnancy's, Endometriosis, woman recovering from a mastectomy these are just a couple of examples of the patients that need care to get back on there feet. The staff on the ward are compassionate hard working and do everything to support there patients Some of the staff on the ward have been working together for 20 + years they are an amazing team.
I'm asking for just a signature from you to keep this ward open for future woman , they have compassion, support and always there with an ear at some of your lowest points. Iv been a patient in and out for the last 9 years facing my own health problems this ward has enabled me to meet people with the same condition as me aswell as many others Who have there own problems. The ward has only 2 side rooms that also can be used to help mothers with new borns who are poorly them self's so the baby can stay with the mother. This will also not happen on a general ward.
If the ward it's to be shut down there won't be a replacement, all patients will be scattered over different wards who maybe have never had to deal with such sensitive subjects along with it also being a mixed male and female ward. SO this will also effect you gents I no I wouldn't want to be put on a ward after invasive surgery, hysterectomy etc next to a man not because I am sexest but because I would feel uncomfortable not only myself but for him also.
Please please x sign it takes less that 60 second to save a future of care. And to hopefully keep the McCALLUM ward open for another 20+ years.
Please sign this In hope that it may change the decision of the McCallum ward from being closed down. AFFECTING 1000s of woman in Torbay , Teignbridge and surrounding areas.
