  1. Our surgery was already doing telephone appts long before Covid. A duty doctor would decide whether you needed face to face or not - often someone who you didn't know . Now if you need a telephone appt and they are all booked you have to ring in the next day even though you know you will still need that appt. If you can get through that is. Even if you get the ringing tone it cuts off after two minutes waiting. Designed to put people off.
  2. Contact your local councillor - https://democracy.sheffield.gov.uk/mgFindMember.aspx?XXR=0&AC=USERSEARCH&ST=Enter name Email them so you have any ongoing 'talks' on hand as proof.
  3. Ronald Thompson was the vicar.
  4. 1950s. sunday school etc.
  5. We enjoyed that too and thought the lad who played Joe was brilliant.
  6. My other half recalls the animals for the circus in 1950s with the elephants walking along.
  7. Or you could go and get new glass cut to size from the sheffield window centre factory. Not very exepensive and it would help keep the house warm. Once they get misted you also lose heat. We did several for our son when he moved house. With a little care and DIY knowledge they are easy.
  8. As always very little help/advice available from social services or NHS if you are not on benefits and pay your own way. In normal times - not Covid times - I would always say visit unannounced to take a look round as it is minefield. Some are like large posh hotels and too unsettling for dementia patients.
  9. Even with a blue badge you can be ages finding place.
  10. Parking is an absolute nightmare and often pot luck to find a place - https://www.sth.nhs.uk/clientfiles/File/pd6466_web.pdf https://www.sth.nhs.uk/our-hospitals/charles-clifford-dental-hospital/how-to-get-here
  11. Long Covid and Chronic fatigue -
  12. Not in recent years - diagnosed in 1997 after 12 yrs of not knowing what it was other than I KNEW it was not arthritis. I then insisted I saw a rheumatologist as there was not a lot of help at that time. Paced/graded excercises made things worse with a heartless physio who said she would get me moving again. They no longer do that thank goodness as it makes things worse. I did attend the Pain Clinic but that is limited on what can help and how often you can have treatment. Luckily more people are aware of FMS now. Best advice is learn all about it, get to know your own body and how it works against you then manage it as best you can. Know your limitations and 'listen' to your body. . If you ever need a physio then use one that understands FMS as they know how not to trigger more pain. I used this clinic - https://www.roundwoodclinic.co.uk/physiotherapy/ and Claire but I am not sure she is still there. I also use a tens machine but do be aware not to place the pads on any trigger or tender points. Hot baths work best for me with a lightweight towel across my shoulders and someone pouring jugs of hot water over me.
  13. She used to live on Heathar Road and went to Shiregreen School.
  14. Donate to Sheffield Archives for Picturesheffield.com They wouldbe very pleased to receive it and it would be kept in a safe place for Sheffields History . https://picturesheffield.com/
  15. all our family have used Sheffield Window centre. We would not use anyone else.
