CORONA VIRUS MEASURES
Heddon on the Wall Parish Council
These are trying times currently upon us and the Parish Council would like to request everyone's help to ensure that any vulnerable people who live in Heddon are being looked after during their time of self isolation. If you are able please could you contact anyone who lives near you to find out if you can offer any help in doing some shopping or collecting prescriptions. Either phone, leave a note or if you call in person please wear a mask or ensure you remain at least 2 metres away.
If you are self-isolating and need some support with shopping, prescriptions etc and you have not been contacted by a neighbour to help you please contact the Parish Council by email on email@example.com or by phone on 01661 854583 we can then put you in touch with a volunteer from either the Parish Council or the Residents Association. Please leave your name and number on your message. We would advise that vulnerable residents do not give any money in advance to volunteers or helpers but pay what is owed from the receipts provided with the required items to make things safer for all.
As I am sure you are aware the Knot Memorial Hall is closed for the next few months and the library will be closed from next week until we receive the all clear from government advice.
The Parish Council are following the advice provided by the Government on the following web page. This is kept up to date with all the latest news.
Please do not hesitate to contact the Parish Council using the contact details above if there is anything you think we can help with.
18 February 2020NHS Survey
Speak Up 2020
Have your say on local NHS, health and social care services in the Healthwatch Northumberland Annual Survey 2020. It might be a new year but your experiences from 2019 still matter. Health services include hospital services, GPs, dentists, pharmacists, mental health and ambulance services. Social care is care in the home or in a residential or nursing care home.
By telling us about the care you received and what’s important to you, you can help us set our work for the coming year so that we can be more effective on your behalf.
You can also come and talk to us and tell us what you think of health and social care services at one of our public events across the county: bit.ly/HWNAnnualSurveyEvents2020, leave feedback online: bit.ly/HWNSpeakUp2020 or call 03332 408468 for a postal copy (freepost return). Let us know about your experiences, what went well and what could be improved, and together we can help make care better for everyone in Northumberland.
