I am fully committed to my role as a councillor. I sit on two committees and through my involvement on these I have learned a lot and constantly try to improve my skills in order to offer better information and advice to the people of the area. I care about improving the social care for service users and carers which has been at the forefront of my scrutiny work.
Although indicators for this ward do not generally reveal significant health problems many of the people living in this area suffer from poor health with high levels of chronic heart and lung disease. Some of the areas within the East Ecclesfield ward fall within the top 20% most deprived areas of England. Following consideration of the statistics, consultation and input from the local services I have identified my key priorities.
