Summary of report content
Healthwatch Cumbria, Lancashire, Blackpool and Blackburn with Darwen have produced a report on the feedback from their Coronavirus survey. This report covers the feedback from 15 April 2020 to 26 April 2020 and covers 49 responses.
As in the previous reports, most respondents were managing to cope during the pandemic, although many continue to miss friends and family and to find it a challenge to be in lockdown, particularly as holidays and social events are cancelled. But there is an increase in the number of people reporting illness and the death of family and friends as well as concerns over a vaccine, the availability of PPE and when/how we will come out of lockdown. The ‘tone’ of responses also seems to be changing, as people have now adjusted to our new way of living, to some extent, although some people are now also starting to question the government’s response.
