伍斯特市的職業治療師和兩個孩子的母親貝絲-皮克斯（Beth Pickess）說，她的擔憂集中在衛生和教育資金方面，以及資金是否會 "像政府可能打算的那樣延伸"。
Nurse Jayne Newman, from Hagley, told the BBC: "If you're on benefits, you've got the increase. But it's the people in the middle, it's the working people that have to do more, that have to do their overtime just to put the heating on.
He said: "The chancellor recognises that he's got to raise more funds by freezing thresholds for tax, but he also recognised the needs of those people on universal credit and those people on a state pension by increasing their allowances by 10.1%.
"I also felt it was a thumbs up in terms of investment into infrastructure. I believe... they're spending... 600 billion on infrastructure over the next five years and are continuing with HS2 to Manchester and also the East-West Rail link."
Occupational therapist and mother-of-two Beth Pickess, of Worcester, said she had concerns centred around health and education funding, and whether sums would "actually stretch as far as the government might intend".
She said: "I'm really worried for how that's actually gonna affect our children that are going into schools or at schools that have been affected by the pandemic.
"Also staff in the NHS, how we can actually deliver a service that is fulfilling for us as professionals to provide, but also meets the needs of our patients, because there is such a backlog and so much work to be done."
"But with maternity pay as it is, for example, for the next few months we're struggling a little bit with that."
"We have still chosen to pay a little bit more just to make sure that we're sort of less in the minus than we could be.
