Vulnerable people across the town are still getting the care they need despite the weather. Hospital staff at Ridgeway Hospital and many Lifeways staff did all they could to make sure they were where they were needed - including arriving on a tractor.

The hospital staff at BMI The Ridgeway Hospital came together to keep services running as usual despite severe weather and road conditions.

Many Lifeways staff in and around Swindon have gone above and beyond to ensure the people they support have consistent care during the adverse weather conditions. Many have walked, cycled driven and struggled on public transport to ensure this.
