SALFORD DEATH MAPS SHOW WHERE YOU LIVE DICTATES HOW LONG YOU LIVE
 

Star date: 6th December 2017

ALMOST AN 11 YEAR LIFE GAP BETWEEN WORSLEY AND BROUGHTON

Life expectancy ward maps of Salford show in graphic detail inequality within the city, as the darker the colour on the map, the more likely people are to die young.

For men, the life expectancy difference between living in the 'darkest' and 'lightest' wards is 10.8 years, while for women it's 7.8 years. Anyone living in Salford can expect to die over two years earlier than the England average.

If you want to die young, Broughton is simply the only place to live, coming in first for early deaths for both men and women. Indeed, women living in Broughton can expect to die 7.8 years earlier than women in Worsley. And men living in that ward can expect to die 10.8 years earlier than Worsley males. Men in Langworthy and Barton also await the same fate.

Maps produced for a new NHS Salford Clinical Commissioning Group report lay it all out in graphic detail, as the darker the ward colour, the more likely people living there will die young.

Men in Worsley, Boothstown and Walkden South can expect to live until the ripe old age of between 80.8 and 82.2, while those in Broughton, Barton and Langworthy are expected to only live to the ages of between 71.7 and 73.2. Men in Little Hulton, Irwell Riverside, Ordsall and Eccles have the second shortest life expectancy at between 73.3 and 74.7.

While Broughton has the shortest life expectancy for women (76.2-77.5), those living in Little Hulton, Ordsall and Barton are only slightly better off, expecting to live to between the ages of 77.6 and 78.7. Worsley ladies can expect to live to between 83.8 and 85.

The maps show the stark inequalities that still prevail in Salford... "There remains an inequality in life expectancy of around 8-11 years between the most advantaged and disadvantaged people of Salford" states the report by the Director of Public Health Salford

"The main causes of earlier deaths in Salford are circulatory disease, respiratory disease, cancers, digestive diseases and mental and behavioural disorders such as dementia" it adds "These conditions may be influenced by both social determinants of health and lifestyles."

While people, in Salford are, on average, living longer – over three years longer for men and over two years for women since 2001 – the city is still two years behind the England average for life expectancy.

"The gap between Salford and the England average however persists although this gap has narrowed since the turn of the century" the report notes.

The maps show the latest official life expectancy figures, although they are from the period 2010-2014. One might expect these maps to change colour in the future, as social inequalities get diluted with all the development in Salford and influx of young professionals...

...Or, as Countryside Properties stated in its planning application for new housing in Broughton, "By introducing more market housing, which is generally occupied by a greater proportion of economically active people, there is likely to be an overall improvement in the health of the residential population of the area..."

Get the idiotic car width cycle lanes ripped up . Get that Express Leigh Bus lane ripped up . Cars should be able to use these lanes . Get the traffic moving . Stop this city choking on car fumes . The clown hall mafia should answer why their failed attempt at congestion charging has not resulted in ripping up road narrowing schemes and speed hump removal. Get it done now you clown hall cretins .

Think about it MJF,the influx of people coming to Salford would all have a Salford postcode, otherwise they would not be in Salford. Once the rules for such a scheme were in place, the educated classes would know the rules and take advantage of them. Getting rid of student debt , all of it , is a good idea. Education should be free, and non repayable grants should be given.education debt is like any other debt, it is designed to enslave people, and keep em all in line.

Felsey Spaner certainly thinks out of the box. Interesting idea. I wonder how many students in Salford feel robbed being tricked into taking a learner debt under Labour or the dreaded Tories. It is time student debt was removed and education become free at the point of use. Felsey Spaner keep throwing your spaner in the works.

Hi Bob thank you and again you are sound. But my idea is to wipe out all Salford Students' debt, for only those with a Salford postcode. The debts in the past include many smaller values but they saddle our now growing up young generation with that debt. If the rest of the UK hears Salford taking the step to address local Students' debt they will also. It comes to be that the idea then multiplies to help the generation of young people to get out of bad debt. Simply by local Councils selling of asset values that we the public own.

MJF has not thought this one out.If out best pals at the council were legally allowed to sell off assets to pay off student debt, this would only lead to a great influx of the socialist chattering classes from Chorlton, and the Tory ones from Trafford, who both go to great lengths to make sure their offspring are university educated, comeing to take advantage of Salfords generosity.This would put further upward price pressure on our inflated local housing market. These people would only come for a short while and would soon piss off back to be with their own kind, taking a housing market profit with them. He is right about the debt problem. Salford council policy saddles our better off kids with huge amounts of debt so it can reduce its own. As for the poorer ones, well in the councils eyes they can go elsewhere.

Wretched past but no excuse for Salford Council not changing life future expectancy to 10 extra years. Sell Council's assets. It can raise enough cash to wipe out all Salford Students' debts. This reduces young people's stress and their parents' stress. It puts enough cash back into families to raise nutritional foods and it gives Salford young people a real chance in life instead of the cruel system burdening local young people with massive debt.

It is beer and fags wot sees em off. Not the Torys ,Not Labour,Not Dennett and his mates,Not lack of money, cos fags and booze cost a lot these days. Smoking and drinking the scourge of the Salford working class. I,m waiting for it, no doubt there are loads of readers out there who had aunties and grannies who smoked 80 woodbines a day from the age of twelve and lived to be 100. And god knows how many grandads who supped a gallon at lunch and a gallon at night each day of st.josephs finest who also lived to a great age. Telling Salford people to give up on the fags and cut down on the beer is impossible,and even the ones who have had good sense by either not smoking at all, or who have given up smoking,seem to just spend more money on booze than their counterparts whose income has to go both ways. Lets face it ,beer and fags probably kills more Salford people each year than the Germans did in two world wars.

Ewan MacColl's wife and songwriting partner, Peggy Seeger, slated the 'land grabbing' move and proposed an alternative use that could be "somewhere unlike anywhere in the world" when news first broke of the demolition last year. This has been ignored  and now another slice of Salford's dwindling heritage is set to disappear...

COUNCIL UPS PRICE OF BUILE HILL MANSION PROJECT TO OVER £20MILLION AS PLANS MET WITH SCORN FROM COMMUNITY

Last night, a packed stormy meeting of the Claremont and Weaste Community Committee left Salford City Council in no doubt that any plans to build houses in Buile Hill Park as part of a deal to restore the Grade 2 listed Mansion will be met with fierce opposition.

Salford Council's Assistant Director of the Environment revealed to the meeting that Salford Red Devils Foundation, one of the driving partners of the project, hadn't even signed the controversial Memorandum of Understanding yet – and that the £1.6million cost of restoring the Mansion would have to be met with £1million a year to sustain it, giving a figure of over £20million.
