It is a fairly quiet place, not on the main roads. There is a nearby corner shop, a hairdresser and takeaway place. There is a primary school about a mile away as well as a secondary school within 2 miles. The nearest GP surgery is 3 miles away whilst dentists, opticians and pharmacies are in the nearest town centre which is just under 4 miles away. The nearest hospital is 8 miles away and a larger hospital is about 20 miles away. Most of our families have cars although a few do not drive and rely on the bus stop which is about a quarter of a mile away from the end of the street.
The street has over 30 residents, all impacted in different ways by the pandemic. We now want to share their stories with you. Some people’s stories may have similarities to you and the way that you live in your street.
Whilst the Community Health Council doesn’t provide hands-on health care, and we don’t organise food deliveries or man the front desks in health care premises, we feel we have made differences to people like this and people like us.
