Impacts of Storm Desmond on Local Social Care - new case study

A PDF version of this case study can also be downloaded from here:
As our climate continues to change it is critical that all parts of the health and social care system, including the communities they serve, take action to prepare.
Vulnerable people are at heightened risk from extreme events such as flooding such as flooding, heat and cold. Social care providers, local authority Health and Wellbeing Boards, and NHS commissioners all have an important role to play in improving the health and wellbeing of local communities. You can contact your local Health and Wellbeing Board via your local council website, to discuss these issues in your area.
