  1. Good - I always say people grumble about teh police but if they don't know what is going on then they can't help with things😊
  2. My 2 x great grandparents had the surnames Damms and they came from Holmesfield way - both are buried at St James Norton.
  3. Sheffield Lane top - a pair are regulars in this area. Said to be about a dozen in Longley park
  4. If it is the same mesh they have used for women in gynae ops then yes there can be problems unless they are using 'new improved' mesh but I have not heard that they are. Someone I know had this used in a bladder prolapse op which failed after 2 yrs. My son had a double hernia repair (groin and higher up) and that has caused him some problems with pain and lumpiness. Ask the question, would be my advice.
  5. Anyone who is carer should register with https://sheffieldcarers.org.uk/ as they are a mine of information and help. They are nothing to do with the Council, social workers or the government. I registered with them years ago when I had caring responsibilities - I still do have them - and they really can offer good advice. I would also think about Power of Attorney if you have not already dealt with this so long as your mother in law is capable of making her own decisions. Anyone approaching a certain age should make one. If it is straightforward you do not need a solicitor unless it is complicated. https://www.gov.uk/power-of-attorney I made my own which is not in practice yet but anytime I feel it needs to be I can had over responsibility for my financial affairs and Health and Care to my appointed attorneys.
  6. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_Albert_Hospital tells something about the hospital. https://vimeo.com/79403717 tells of Whittington hall
  7. Try this https://www.sheffieldhistory.co.uk/forums/topic/5018-sheffield-peace-congress/?tab=comments#comment-29264
  8. http://democracy.sheffield.gov.uk/mgFindMember.aspx You can find out who your local Councillor is on this site. They can add weight to your complaint. email - EnvironmentalServicesAdmin@sheffield.gov.uk https://www.sheffield.gov.uk/content/dam/sheffield/docs/public-health/pollution/Environment R Enforcement Policy 2014.pdf Rats are supposed to be nocturnal but it is becoming more normal to see them any time now. We used to call out environmental health as we have had problems over the years due to both privately owned and rented out houses nearby. Now it is just not affordable for us seeing as they charge so much for limited visits - 3 I think. We bait our own rat boxes all year round. and that way we know when they are more active than normal. https://www.sheffield.gov.uk/home/public-health/pest-control charges for calling then out
  9. Sometimes continuity with the same doctor is beneficial to the patient though when there are ongoing problems.
  10. Already happening at my surgery. Even an electronic letter from a consultant to a GP is checked by the responsible receptionist and is unlikely to be seen by my GP until a week after it has been sent. Plus we have Physicians' Associates in place of seeing a GP too.
  11. Doubtful as it is a bank holiday. Friday it probably will be.
  12. Anyone know of a bakery in North Sheffield area where I can buy the long fermented sourdough bread? Tried one or two other places but it is the fast type that tastes a bit vinegary. Thanks
