SALFORD PEOPLE SUFFERING HEALTH PROBLEMS FROM AUSTERITY

Star date: 31st July 2014

FINANCIAL HARDSHIP CAUSING HUGE INCREASE IN HEALTH PROBLEMS SAY DOCTORS

A survey by The BMJ reveals that 94% of GPs believe their workload has increased in the past year because of financial hardship amongst their patients, while two thirds state that their patients' health is being harmed by benefit cuts.

Benefit cuts brought in by the ConDem Government are leading to debt and housing problems, which in turn are leading to mental and physical health issues. The new research is released as Salford Council confirms that it is cutting its Welfare Rights and Debt Advice service.

There was fury yesterday as six councillors sitting on Salford Council's Budget Scrutiny Committee unanimously voted to reject a `call in' to reconsider over £4million of cuts to services for vulnerable people in the city.

The call in was brought by three Labour councillors, who, backed by service users, argued against the cuts on both financial, safety and moral grounds. But UNISON's Steve North said afterwards, "We put our faith in the democratic process, were patronised and then told unanimously that we needn't have bothered."
