Community health services

We asked local residents using community health services like podiatry and physiotherapy whether they felt they were waiting a long time for an appointment. We wanted to learn whether that had any impact on their health.


We received 70 survey responses:

  • Many of the people who told us they had to wait a long time said that this did have an impact on their health.
  • A significant number of the people we heard from were not told how long they would have to wait.
  • In general, respondents felt that the care they received when their appointment took place was good.
