NHS Glasgow Centre for Integrative Care in-patient service

The proposal to close the in-patient service at the NHS Glasgow Centre for Integrative Care (CIC) has been designated a “minor service change” by the Scottish Health Council. This means NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde can close the ward without a full public consultation. The health board is meeting on 20 December to consider its decision. The in-patient service plays an important role in helping chronically ill people at the award-winning CIC, and your intervention is required to save it from being cut. Supporters of the CIC living in Scotland should write to:

Nicola Sturgeon, First Minister: Firstminister@gov.scot
Shona Robison, Cabinet Secretary for Health: CabSecHS@gov.scot
Aileen Campbell, Public Health Minister: MinisterPHS@gov.scot

Also, those living in Scotland should write or phone their local MSP asking them to speak up for the CIC on your behalf. You can find your MSP by entering your postcode on the Scottish Parliament website.
