5 days (again!) to local elections – today’s pictures

Community hospital beds closed in Axminster, Seaton, Honiton and Ottery St Mary. EDDC Tories refuse to list the them as community assets, DCC Tories don’t want to discuss it either. There are simply not enough community staff to look after vulnerable people in their own homes:

‘There’s no money to provide ‘Care in the Community’…but we have just enough to move him into the carpark!’

‘That IS her care pathway.’

‘This is one of our elderly patients, or to use the technical term ‘bedblocker’.’
