Crucial Services for

Before we think of hairdressers/beauticians. It is important to think of more important services.
i.e opticians, dentists as this is impacting on us.
Also important to think of re-introducing health care clinics e.g diabetic, asthma and blood pressure clinics which are undertaken by GP. We need to look at the population's as a whole now in regards to health care.
It has also been mentioned already about restarting certain health screening eg mammographs and cervical smears which is also important .

Why the contribution is important

Everything was really put on hold to deal with covid -19 and also to safeguard us the public
However it has been recognised that people have not attended hospital or GP with serious symptoms either due to being afraid of attending a hospital or GP or thinking the services had ceased.
I have to say though that it also identified the misuse of certain services.

    I agree. Restarting normal health services including being able to be seen face to face by your GP and access to dentists, referrals to specialist clinics etc should be the first thing opened up. These services are only open to emergencies at the moment and people have other health concerns that are just being ignored at the moment. Far more important than opening workplaces, leisure facilities, shops etc

    Absolutely agree.
    Dentists should be top of the list for 're opening!
    Having toothache for weeks is unacceptable!

    Strongly agree. No dentistry is simply not an option for months on end.
