The Liverpool Echo has this story on its web site – see link above.

Should this proposed move be a concern for Maghull and Melling residents? What are the risks to those communities? How did the Scott Clinic fit in with the Rainhill community? Have risk assessments associated with the Maghull and Melling communities been done? What do Maghull Neighbourhood Police think? Has Sefton Council been consulted, if so how did it respond? Have Melling Parish Council and Maghull Town Council been contacted by the NHS? What are the residents living close to the Ashworth site going to be told and when. Are those same residents going to be able to present their views and concerns, should they have any, before any final decisions are made?

There may well be many more questions before we can properly assess whether this is a credible move for the Maghull and Melling communities or not.
