COUNCILLORS have given final approval for two care centres for elderly people in Sheffield to be closed, writes Health Reporter Ben Spencer.
Sheffield Council’s Labour cabinet this afternoon voted unanimously to decommission Sevenfields resource centre in Wisewood and Hazelhurst resource centre in Jordanthorpe.
Some 62 staff members from the two centres now face an uncertain future.
Once the two centres are shut the service will be outsourced to private providers.
