Summary of report content
Healthwatch Blackburn with Darwen, Blackpool, Cumbria and Lancashire worked together to launch a survey assessing people's experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic. 110 people responded to the survey during week two of the project.
The report found that people continue to experience social changes and remain anxious and stressed about the situation.There were several people who were living alone, were housebound and were feeling lonely, as well as several who have to isolate from members of their family, within the same house. People raised concerns about how they can look after and care for the vulnerable. A range of methods are used to take care of their emotional and mental health during this time.
These local Healthwatch are comparing findings each week to track changes to how people are coping with the pandemic.
