Barclays Bank support for elderly customers

“I was phoned some time ago by Barclays in Kings Heath by someone checking on their elderly customers, asking if there was anything they could do to help. I said I was concerned about running out of cash during the lockdown. They said I could contact their foreign exchange department and order sterling to be delivered to my home (Telephone: 0345 072 2222 option 1). I tried this out last week and it worked very well. There was no charge for this service.”

If other banks offer this service, please let us know so we can share the information.

Earlswood Garden Centre

“The Centre is now open 7.00 to 2.00 – not as on the website – but as on their telephone (01564 702 314). I ordered and paid for some compost on the phone at the weekend and collected it this morning. I got there about 7.30 and was back in Moseley soon after 8.”

“I have been practicing for 23 years from the above address.
I am a Chiropodist/Podiatrist, HCPC registered, and a member of the College of Podiatry.
My practice hours :
Monday          9.30 – 6
Tuesday         9.30 – 8
Wednesday  9.30 – 6
Friday            9.30 – 6

I also perform Nail surgery under local anaesthetic, treat veruccae and Diabetic care.
I can do Home visits for the elderly and house bound.

Currently I am working under new Government and College of Podiatry guidelines, and so seeing high risk patients (Diabetics, Anticoagulant therapy patients, over 70’s who cannot manage their nails/foot care, Cardiovascular patients) and emergencies (ingrowing toenails, cuts/abrasions, damaged toenails, sepsis).

Patients are welcome to ring up and be assessed as to whether they can be seen at the moment. In the current pandemic climate, the surgery has strict protocol after every patient attends…all surfaces, are wiped down with a recommended virucidal spray, gloves, masks and apron are worn, social distancing is adhered to, and floors are mopped with bleach.”
