   New Emergency Support Line For Vulnerable People    30 March, 2020

Today (Monday 30 March) Cumbria County Council and partners have launched a new emergency support service for people at high risk of becoming seriously ill, as a result of COVID-19, and who do not have support available from friends, family or neighbours.

Those at high risk include people over 70 years old, pregnant women and those with underlying health conditions who should be protecting themselves by staying at home. The majority of these people will already be receiving support from family, friends or local voluntary groups with tasks like shopping or collection of medicines if they require it. But we know that a small number of people will not have this support. If they have no alternative, these people will now be able to call the Freephone number to request help with getting food, medicines, essential supplies and home deliveries.

   Drivers Targeted With Fake Fines    3 July, 2019

Action Fraud have received an increase in reports and intelligence where elderly victims are being targeted by individuals purporting to be police officers or traffic wardens. The victims are being approached whilst parked in a car park and are told by the suspect that they have parked illegally or broken a speed limit and a photo has been taken of their car for ‘evidence’.

Victims are advised that they will face a substantial penalty fine unless they pay a smaller upfront fee immediately. Victims, who opt for paying the smaller penalty, will be directed to a parking meter and asked to enter their card and PIN. These parking meters have been tampered with by the suspect in order to retain the card.

Once the victim inserts their card and are asked for their PIN, the victims are shoulder surfed for their PIN by the suspect. Once victims input their PIN, the card is retained by the machine and victims are told by the suspect to seek help from the company who operates the parking meter or their bank.

   Cumbria Fire & Rescue: Register my appliance Day    16 January, 2018

People are reminded to improve their home safety by taking the simple step of registering their fridges, freezers and washing machines on the new streamlined version of www.registermyappliance.org.uk.

Developed by the Association of Manufacturers of Domestic Appliances (AMDEA), the portal now optimised for smartphone makes registration of over 60 leading brands of old and new appliances faster and easier via mobile, tablet or PC. 

As part of the national fire safety campaign, Cumbria Fire & Rescue Services, is keen to ensure that every UK household is encouraged to take this very simple step, and made aware of how it can help to protect their homes and families.

Many brands are running prize draws to encourage owners to look around their kitchens and register their older appliances too.  Every registration increases the chances of winning a luxury prize and ensures the traceability of these products. Most makes accept registration of large appliances up to 12 years old.

For manufacturers and fire and rescue services increasing home safety has never been more important.  With an estimated 93 million (92.7m.) wet and cold appliances  currently in use in our homes, keeping track of our fridges, freezers and washing machines is a crucial safety precaution. By taking just a few minutes to register domestic appliances directly with the manufacturer, via the user-friendly portal www.registermyappliance.org.uk, householders can be contacted quickly if a recall or free safety repair is ever needed.

   Candle Fire Safety Week: Snuff out the fire risk    16 October, 2017

As part of the Fire Kills campaign, Fire & Rescue services across the country are asking people to take care this Candle Fire Safety Week (16-22 October) and snuff out the risk of fire in their homes.


With winter fast approaching, a few candles scattered round the room can lend a warm glow to an evening in or add some festive cheer to the season’s celebrations such as Guy Fawkes’ night and Christmas.

But with candle fires resulting in over 300 casualties each year, Cumbria Fire & Rescue Service is asking people to take extra care with candles this winter – more than one in three of all reported accidental fires in the home started by candles result in a death or injury. 


The most important step you can take to keep yourself and your loved ones safe is to ensure your home has working smoke alarms. To prevent candle fires from starting in your home, you should make sure your candles are kept away from flammable materials like curtains and ensure candles are put out when you leave the room, even for a moment.


 Mark Ducie, Station Manager - Prevention said:


“Candles are a typical sight in many homes, scenting our rooms and giving an atmospheric glow to cold winter nights. But it’s important to remember that a candle is not just a decorative feature. Left unattended, an open flame scenting your home could leave a trail of devastation".


“Place your lit candles with extra care, away from curtains, pets and children and always remember to put them out when you leave the room, even for a moment".


“Even with these precautions it’s vital to be prepared should the worst happen. Working smoke alarms can give you the vital time you need to get out, stay out and call 999. Keep yourself and your loved ones safe by testing your alarm regularly and by practising your escape routes".

The National Fraud Intelligence Bureau (NFIB) and Action Fraud have recently noticed a rise in the reporting of pets, and in particular puppies and kittens, being advertised for sale via popular online auction websites. The fraudsters will place an advert of the pet for sale, often claiming that the pet is currently held somewhere less accessible or overseas. Upon agreement of a sale, the suspect will usually request an advance payment by money transfer or bank transfer. However, the pet does not materialise and the fraudster will subsequently ask for further advanced payments for courier charges, shipping fees and additional transportation costs. Even if further payments are made, the pet will still not materialise as it is likely to not exist.

Research indicates that this will be beneficial to the organisation for a number of reasons - most notably that staff will be able to perform to their maximum potential for longer. Employers are not only doing the right thing, but they are ensuring their organisation is more productive.

   Healthcare for the future Newsletter from NHS Cumbria    11 October, 2016

From Sir Neil Mckay Welcome to the first edition of our regular electronic newsletter for local stakeholders and members of the public who wish to be kept informed about the Healthcare for the Future public consultation.

The consultation, which was launched in West, North and East Cumbria on 26th September, covers a number of possible service changes including changes to maternity services, children’s services, community hospital inpatient beds, emergency and acute care and stroke services. It also covers some recent temporary changes in emergency surgery, trauma and orthopaedic services.

When I launched the consultation, with colleagues from all parts of the local NHS, I said the health and social care system in this part of the country faces a number of major challenges including difficulty in attracting doctors, nurses, paramedics and other staff to live and work in Cumbria, hospital stays that are longer than they need to be, hospital admissions that are unnecessary, a significant NHS overspend and some services which are described by the Care Quality Commission as being either inadequate or in need of improvement.

Healthwatch Cumbria (HWC) is delighted to present a new style of engagement through our “Healthwatch Cumbria Chatty Van”. This HWC branded vehicle will help us to take listening events to communities rather than expect people to come to halls and town centers to reach us.

Over the next 8 weeks the “Chatty Van” has a busy schedule across West, North and East Cumbria as it seeks the views of the public to inform the thinking of the Success Regime.  A short survey will be used to encourage people to think about how their health and care services should look like in the future. HWC staff will be on the van to support people to respond to the questions using ipad’s ensuring that answers can be quickly processed and fed directly into the groups charged with shaping options.

Healthwatch Cumbria is committed to ensuring that the views that people share with us are fed into the groups that are responsible for developing a range of options for clinical services such as maternity, children’s and community services.

As more information about the current thinking becomes available from the NHS we will ensure that we discuss this with members of the public helping people to understand any potential options and share their views.
