    Are they going to take away all the pockets of help we can access around the country? When will it end?

  2. Sheila Hale UNITED KINGDOM

    this is a very valuable clinic which offers a unique service in this area, an invaluable help to so many parents.

  3. Paul Davis UNITED KINGDOM

    I appreciate that services need to be reviewed. However, decisions that affect the most vulnerable when they have proved to effective, need to be made in a transparent way. I would question the decision to close Dr Sheehan’s clinic and support this petition.

  4. judith gordon UNITED KINGDOM

    Please save the clinic.

  5. Julia Darbyshire UNITED KINGDOM

    As a mother of a child with DS in London I would say that ENT provision is one of the most important things for our children, especially in the first 10 years, and afterwards. Would be a very sad loss to so many people in Manchester – and beyond – if Mr Sheehan’s good work was hindered.

  6. mari saeki UNITED KINGDOM

    This sounds like an invaluable service.Please ensure it continues.

  7. Mel Barlow UNITED KINGDOM

    Such a valued resource – please reconsider.

  8. Michelle Stewart UNITED KINGDOM

    Mr Sheehan and his team provide an amazing service to children with Downs Syndrome. My daughter would still be without hearing aids if it wasnt for Mr Sheehan’s expertise and determined nature as opposed to my local audiologists wait and see attitude. Many of the children with Downs syndrome in our area now attend this clinic, which has a long waiting list. Does this not show that it is a much needed and respected clinic?

  9. Chris Hogg

    Please save this vital service

  10. Christine Kelly UNITED KINGDOM

    My granddaughter has down syndrome and has been seeing Dr Sheehan for the past 3 years, to have his support and expertise removed at such short notice can only be detrimental to her future development. I urge you to reconsider your decision.

  11. Patrick Kelly UNITED KINGDOM

    My granddaughter Charlotte has benefitted from Dr Sheehan’s expertise over the last few years. I would urge Manchester Children’s Hospital to reconsider their decision to close this service and stop the closure of the ENT and Hearing Clinic for children with Down Syndrome in Manchester.

  12. Craig Stewart UNITED KINGDOM

    Please don’t close this clinic – we need it.

  13. jacqueline barker UNITED KINGDOM

    THIS CLINIC MUST BE KEPT OPEN

  15. Patrick Kelly UNITED KINGDOM

    My granddaughter Charlotte has benefitted from Dr Sheehan’s expertise over the last few years. I would urge Manchester Children’s Hospital to reconsider their decision to close this service and stop the closure of the ENT and Hearing Clinic for children with Down Syndrome in Manchester.

  16. Graham Fairhurst UNITED KINGDOM

    Good Luck

  17. Pat Fairhurst UNITED KINGDOM

    Best of Luck

  18. Steven Fitzsimmons

    We have been visiting Mr Sheehan with our daughter Charlotte for quite some time and this news has come as such shock and disappointment. The specialism and care he provides is second to none and why this service is being closed as opposed to being promoted is madness.

  19. Clare Prendergast UNITED KINGDOM

    please add my name to this petition. I have already submitted this but have been asked again.

  20. Martin Norris

    Please take time to read the testimonies posted in this petition, and re-consider the decision to close the clinic at the Manchester Children’s Hospital.
