Eviction of older people from hospitals

Judy Downey, R&RA Chair on LBC today on the impossible dilemma of hospitals ‘evicting’ older patients who have nowhere to go.

Desperate relatives call our Helpline not knowing where to turn or what to do.

Pity that those affected have such weak and unheard voices.
