Changes are not for the better
I write in response to two points from your latest issue (October 11).
When my father visited me having recently injured himself in a fall, he needed his dressing changed by a health professional every other day.
The walk-in centre did this over the weekend, telling us that my GP surgery would do future changes. However, they couldn't, only being able to offer an appointment with a nurse in several days' time, so we had to go back to the walk-in centre. This service was invaluable, stopping us from clogging up A&E.
When the old rubbish collection was scrapped the first we knew of it was from local TV. The dustman used to walk around the back of the houses, take plastic bags out of the metal bins and there was very little mess. Now that we have to leave refuse out in the street, there is constant spillage, aside from the unsightly bags and boxes obstructing the pavements. I wrote, twice, to B&NES' chief executive to ask why this second rate service had been imposed and why we had not been informed.

There was no response. Local councillors were most helpful and interested in the issue, but proved powerless to influence the edict.
