SALFORD FOURTH WORST PREMATURE DEATH RATE IN ENGLAND
 

Star date: 11th June 2013

COME TO SALFORD AND DIE EARLY…

Salford is the fourth worst area in England for early deaths according to statistics released today by Public Health England – ranking 147th worst local authority area out of 150. Amongst similar local authorities Salford ranks the worst in the country, 15th out of 15.

The shocking early death rates, for cancer, lung, liver and heart disease, are linked to poverty.

Public Health England has today released a health map of England which shows that Salford is the fourth worst area in the country for premature deathsranking 147th out of 150 local authorities.

Amongst areas that are similar to Salford we rank the worst in the country, 15th out of 15.

The statistics are based on premature deaths from cancer, and lung, liver and heart disease, and show a premature mortality rate of 382 deaths per 100,000 between 2009 and 2011 – up to a third higher than the lowest ranked authority areas.

In April the Salford Star published findings from the latest Salford Public Health Annual Report which showed that Salford has the second highest number of new cases of cancer in the country, and that death rates for females in Salford have been rising since 2010, while the rates for England and the North West have been falling (click here for full details).

The findings also showed that death rates for mental and behavioural related issues, not mentioned in this latest Public Health England report, have been rising dramatically in Salford.

Where you live in Salford also affects how long you live…

If you are female and live in Broughton or Winton your life expectancy is between 72.9 and 76.6 years. If you are a female who lives in Boothstown and Ellenbrook you can expect to live between 83.7 and 85.1 years.

If you're a male living in Broughton, Langworthy, Irwell Riverside or Barton your life expectancy is between 67.5 and 72.1 years. If you're a male living in Worsley you can expect to live between 80.1 and 81.2 years.

It's no coincidence that the more `deprived' the area you live in, the higher the mortality rate. And it's going to get worse as the ConDem Government cuts hit the poorest people in the city.

The latest Salford Council report on the impact of `Welfare Reforms', states that the results of the welfare cuts for Salfordians would be "higher levels of depression and mental health problems" (see here).

Surprise surprise! If you can afford to live in the rich part of Salford you will last 10 years+ longer than if you live in the poor part of Salford.

The point is Gail that government whether local or national does not represent the people of this country so your suggestion to take evidence to parliament is pretty useless. Unless there is another body in London you refer too. In the case you are talking about the courts I refer you to my answer regarding expenses & lobbying where laws were broking and little was done. I am far from confused & fail to see what bearing my income has on such matters.

Mr Brough, what have the expense and lobbying scandals got to do with you going to Parliament and putting your evidence forward. I get paid a lot of money to be confused! And You?!

@Gail makes valid points. This goes towards asking why our elected Mayor turned down Paul Massey offer to meet and run a Council Cooperative of Ideas. We have matters that are not political but need quite an independent approach. The question on why people die earlier in the North than South is one of those. It is time for Labour Salford to embrace opportunities to reach out to all people and have a joined up way of getting change, investment and better results.

The point is that although geographically "Winton is only a sparrow's fart from Worsley" economically the Grand Canyon would be more apt. As for taking evidence anywhere who would listen? Have you not heard of the expenses & lobbying scandals? Your post is as confused as Mr Felse's inane meanderings.

Mr.Felse if you feel that your opinion is so important why do you not start your own blog. You really are deranged. You can pontificate on here as much as you desire, but be assured that the Mayor, and I use that term with tongue in cheek. Could not give a flying f for what you spout on here. One minute you are Labour. What is the point. The best thing you people can do is to form either your own think tank or a delegation, and go forth to London and put your points across. Take all your evidence of negligence and corruption you seem to have plenty. They are not going to bite you, there is not a huge wall around Salford. We are not in the Eastern Bloc. But no, you bleat and bitch, for years you have voted these people into power, or not voted at all. As for all this early death situation, Winton is a sparrows fart from Worsley, so the air decides that it will infect all the people in Winton but not in Worsley, and they are all serviced by that wonderful Airport masquerading as an Hosiptal, Hope, or is it Salford Royal? Your M.Ps' do nothing for you and only attend Parliament to further their own self interests, but, hey just bitch on here that will make a huge difference. Get your acts together, and start doing something for yourselves, this Town has a wonderful history. So fight for it, Salford Council is not the be all and end all, they have to answer to Whitehall, so unless you get your collective arses in gear and get through there, nothing will happen. Sorry to interject, I do wish you all well.

This must say to our Labour Council that they must outlaw the bedroom tax, invest in more services to vulnerable people and improve sports and leisure activities that build strong community health. We need improved health (measured in people's lives). I beg Mayor Stewart to demand our MPs go to London and tell Parliament that this drastic statistic is not acceptable. They must demand greater investment in Salford health or else the deaths will stay on the hands of those that fail to destroy our early death disastrous statistic. Answers now must come from our Mayor and MPs. What are you going to do?

SALFORD COUNCIL REFUSES TO REVEAL WHO PAID FOR CITY MAYOR TRIP TO SOUTH OF FRANCE

Star date: 19th June 2018

COUNCIL BLOCKS FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST ON £4,000 MIPIM TRIP

Salford City Council has refused to answer a Salford Star Freedom of Information request on which private company paid the £4,022 costs for City Mayor Paul Dennett and two staff to go to the South of France for the MIPIM property event.

The Council states that "the commercial interests of the Council outweigh that of the public interest in disclosure". The Salford Star is to appeal the decision.

DEVASTATING SURVEY OF NORTH WEST COUNCIL WORKERS SHOWS LOCAL SERVICES COLLAPSING

OVER 80% OF COUNCIL WORKERS HAVE NO CONFIDENCE IN SERVICES AND ALMOST 50% THINKING OF LEAVING THEIR JOBS

A survey of almost 1,500 local council workers in the North West reveals that 81% have no confidence in the future of local services, 49% are thinking of leaving their jobs, 54% believe their council no longer delivers quality services, and 45% think that their employer doesn't make the right decisions for the public.

The other results of the survey by UNISON to coincide with its local government conference make equally depressing reading, as the union states that "Vital local services in the North West are collapsing".

SALFORD TIME OUT FOR CARERS

Star date: 18th June 2018

TRIPS, CAKES, MASSAGE, ADVICE AND CHAT AS CARERS TAKE TIME OUT

"I was absolutely weary...I needed to get out of the house" Ernie

Caring for a loved one is indeed a labour of love but it can also be life consuming and draining. So a group called Time Out For Carers is making a difference, running weekly sessions where escapism is the order of the day.

There's free massages, trips out, advice on allowances, tea and coffee and cakes, but, most importantly, relaxed informal chats with carers who are all in the same position.
