NHS Report damns Greenwich

According to the new NHS Communtity Profile website, Greenwich is in a shockingly bad state.

The report states that of the 16 wards in the Borough, 11 are among the "most deprived in England". It goes on to say that quality of Council housing is "poor", and GCSE achievement is "low".

The report also confirms what we mentioned about the Leader of the Council's speech at the Mayoral inauguration. In his speech, Chris Roberts admitted that Greenwich was an unhealthy place to bring up children. It appears that the NHS agrees with him, as do we.

We think it'll be interesting to see how the Council reacts to this daming indictment. Especially as the report so clearly contradicts the view of the Borough that the Council promotes through it's press releases and Greenwich Time.
