Welcome to the Revoe Blackpool 'Our Bigger Story' website. This is part of the multi media evaluation of 15 Big Local areas in England. The website is an opportunity to follow what is changing in Revoe Blackpool as a result of Big Local over a ten year period.
The aim of the website is to share the learning from everything that is happening in Revoe Blackpool with other Big Local areas and highlight what works in communities with a wider audience of practitioners and policy makers.
On a beautiful sunny day in June, Revoelution took to the streets of Revoe with a handful of junior doctors and pharmacist from the local pharmacy, to speak to residents where they were about access to health services and health concerns in the area. The doctors and pharmacist were amazing! We spoke to over 50 people and found that most people were content with the healthcare available despite no actual doctors or dentists being present in the Revoe boundary. We also found that drug and substance misuse was the single biggest concern!
