Health & Wellbeing
People living in Manor, Park, Woodthorpe and Wybourn have much poorer health than other areas of Sheffield. We know from local health data and from consulting with local people that heart disease, chronic obstructive lung disease, joint and muscular problems and mental health are the major health conditions affecting people in these areas.
