Case Studies

Mr Baldwin

“From making the initial enquiry, then about 3-4 weeks later I had the new boiler installed. It was great, they were very efficient and the water is much hotter too.  I’m looking forward to being warm this winter and hopefully paying less for my fuel bills”

Mr Baldwin, aged 68, has arthritis and respiratory problems, resulting in poor mobility and breathing difficulties. Prior to contacting Warm Zones he had recently been admitted to hospital twice.

The old boiler in his home was inefficient, the controls had broken and it kept breaking down, leaving Mr Baldwin without heating for periods of time.  This was directly contributing to his poor health and hospital visits.

Warm Zones arranged for a new boiler to be installed, with funding contributions secured from Gateshead NHS and local Warm Zones gap funding, including some via a Department of Health initiative.

Partnerships of this kind are essential in reaching people like Mr Baldwin who is unable to replace his old heating system and has been surviving in a cold home which has greatly impacted his health. Working in partnership with the health sector is vital and the interventions made can reduce the costs and burden on the NHS as customers’ health as a result can improve or reduce the need for hospital admissions.
