Glenside Manor Hospital, a purpose-built large care home in South Newton is closing and all the staff, reportedly, are being made redundant.

Staff have told their union they are devastated and regret the loss of faith in the healthcare system causing the situation to arise.

Mark Wareham, steward and branch secretary of UNISON’s Salisbury Health branch, said the owners had dismissed many good and long serving managers and other support staff.

He called it ‘an utter disgrace’ and said it was “a sad indictment of the current market system in healthcare and an employment approach sadly not uncommon among private healthcare providers in particular.”
