Croydon Healthy Homes home visits suspended

As a result of the advice from the government to avoid all unnecessary social contact, the Croydon Healthy Homes team is suspending the Croydon Healthy Homes programme of home visits immediately.

All appointments currently booked will be postponed until it is safe to resume the programme.  The team are happy to accept new referrals, but there may be a delay before those referred are contacted.

They hope to be able to offer some energy advice over the phone during this difficult period.
