hospital1 Below are some of the thoughts and points discussed in the development of the Lydney Draft NDP.

The health of the population should be improved through healthy lifestyles and provision of health care in Lydney which matches the needs of the community. The health provision in Lydney must meet the requirements of the community (eg catering for the elderly) and must also be of an appropriate scale.

Things to think about: Do all the policies in the plan contribute to health life styles (ie access to sport, walking etc., Does the health provision provide what is needed for Lydney? Are there enough GP surgeries? Are there sufficient dental surgeries? Should Lydney have improved specialist facilities to reduce the need for the vulnerable to travel to city centres for treatment? Can Lydney hospital be enlarged sufficiently or is a new, larger better equipped and located hospital required?
