Peasley Cross

We have heard from families, and in the media, about  the deaths on Taylor ward on Friday. We offer our condolences to family and friends of those involved, and hope the media will respect the PCC code of conduct in reporting.

We trust 5 Boroughs will do everything they can to support all people on the wards and anyone who is concerned about these very sad events.

There are excellent support systems in St Helens including:

  • together
  • Mind
  • St Helens Carers Centre
  • Open Mind service provided by the PCT
  • many self help groups
  • mental health advocates at the Coalition of Disabled People
  • PALS officers at 5 Boroughs

If you are at all worried by these recent events, please do talk to someone.
