Require hospitals to offer private rooms to vulnerable patients

Petition Details

We want the Government to require hospitals to offer private rooms to patients who are vulnerable, to help protect them from catching infections and viruses while they are in hospital.

Additional Information

I suffer from Lung disease and an autoimmune disease. I'm on immune suppressants which leave my immune system compromised and vulnerable to infections and viruses, including covid, which can make me extremely ill and even be life threatening.

Since Dec 2023/Jan 2024 I've been in hospital twice, to two different hospitals and after my stay with both of them I caught covid. Each time I get infected it affects my lungs and takes me longer to recover compared to someone without health problems.

If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
