Limiting Long Term Illness

Similarly as the table above shows over half of the population of Filey ward describe themselves as having a “limiting long term illness” as compared with just over a fifth within the Borough as a whole. (2001 Census).

Key Issues

  • Access to health facilities, including Scarborough Hospital is a particular issue for Filey residents who do not have access to a private car. Two buses are required in order to get to the Hospital and this can be difficult for many elderly patients or visitors, or those who may be ill and frail. However, it is recognised that additional facilities are now provided in GP surgeries enabling people to access a wider range of services than was previously the case and reducing some of the need to travel to the hospital.
