Bucks Council – Covid update

Leader of the Council sets out the current infection rate in Bucks, & what we can do about it.  Bucks Council Covid-19 update, 15th Sept

Web page Editor’s note – The update correctly argues that we all have a part to play in keeping Bucks safe.   It is actually wider than that, by keeping infection rates low in our area we act as a buffer between other areas, & vice versa. So by complying with guidance we help keep infection rates down everywhere.  To borrow from a certain supermarket – ‘Every little helps’.

Have your say on how Health and Social Care is delivered in Bucks.

Health and social care providers in Buckinghamshire, including GPs and Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust, are calling on residents to participate in the new Health & Social Care Survey. They would like to understand how residents from all backgrounds currently use health and social care services and are particularly interested to hear which services are working well and where possible improvements could be made.

Deadline extended to 23rd Oct.
