Dearne residents were invited to have their say on proposed changes to learning services for disabled people.

The NHS Rotherham Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is looking at closing Rhymer’s Court in Rotherham - a five bed residential facility which offers education and support for disabled people.

The services offered and beds provided would then be absorbed into other facilities in Rotherham and Doncaster.

Residents, like Bert Palmer above, gathered at Oaks Day Centre in Wath to have their say on the consultation, which ends on July 31.

Dr Russell Brynes, NHS Rotherham CCG GP lead for mental health services, said: “We are committed to providing high quality and safe learning disability services for the people of Rotherham. We want to improve access to skilled professionals to deliver better patient care and improve patient experience.”
