Hi, I'm Ayshah, it's finally Friday and here's what's

:00:00.:00:00.

We've got some good news for dolphins...

:00:07.:00:09.

And the staircase making lives easier in China.

:00:10.:00:21.

First up, hospitals are really busy at the moment, and lots of people

:00:22.:00:25.

So what does it mean for children who have to go to hospital?

:00:26.:00:30.

It's the middle of winter, which means it's a very

:00:31.:00:34.

busy time of the year for the National Health Service,

:00:35.:00:36.

People are worried it's now getting too busy

:00:37.:00:44.

and overcrowded in hospitals, and this means they're having

:00:45.:00:46.

to wait a really long time to be seen by a doctor.

:00:47.:00:49.

I've come to Sheffield Children's Hospital to meet a doctor who works

:00:50.:00:52.

in the emergency department to find out what's going on.

:00:53.:00:54.

Is it true, are hospitals getting busier, and especially

:00:55.:00:56.

Yes, they are getting busier, and year on year we see

:00:57.:01:00.

bigger numbers coming, but there is also an increase

:01:01.:01:04.

in the winter, which is part of the winter pressures,

:01:05.:01:07.

but we are prepared for those, we know they're coming.

:01:08.:01:09.

If you're seriously injured, will you still get seen?

:01:10.:01:14.

Of course, we have a system called triage, which basically means

:01:15.:01:16.

sorting, so when you come through the door you're put

:01:17.:01:20.

into a category depending on how severe the nurse or doctor

:01:21.:01:23.

If you were to come to our department tomorrow

:01:24.:01:28.

and you were seriously ill or injured, you'd be

:01:29.:01:30.

If you came with a less urgent problem you might wait a while,

:01:31.:01:34.

OK, yes, hospitals are definitely getting busier, but that doesn't

:01:35.:01:38.

So what's it actually like having to come into hospital?

:01:39.:01:43.

Jake had to come into hospital when he thought

:01:44.:01:47.

And Lily came in after getting bitten by a dog.

:01:48.:01:57.

What's it like coming to the hospital?

:01:58.:01:58.

Well, when I came there weren't too many people there,

:01:59.:02:00.

there were a few seats taken but generally it was quite quick.

:02:01.:02:03.

Within ten minutes I was into the x-ray room

:02:04.:02:07.

It was quite a different experience for you, though, Lily.

:02:08.:02:12.

I got bitten by a dog out of a car window.

:02:13.:02:18.

It took quite a long time to get here, then it was quite busy.

:02:19.:02:21.

There were a lot of people there because it was on the weekend

:02:22.:02:27.

and it took quite a long time to get seen, but I eventually did get seen.

:02:28.:02:31.

Well, the Government have been criticised by doctors,

:02:32.:02:36.

who argue that part of the problem is that patients who are well enough

:02:37.:02:39.

to leave hospital can't because they're not being given

:02:40.:02:43.

The Government say they know that hospitals are very

:02:44.:02:48.

busy at the moment but, despite this, the hospitals

:02:49.:02:51.

It's the second round of Six Nations matches this weekend -

:02:52.:02:58.

Ireland take on Italy, while the Scots have a tricky

:02:59.:03:02.

game away game in Paris against the French.

:03:03.:03:04.

But the big game of the weekend will be England vs Wales.

:03:05.:03:08.

The game is being played at the Millennium Stadium

:03:09.:03:11.

and the Welsh team had asked for the roof to be closed,

:03:12.:03:14.

but England coach Eddie Jones has asked for it to be kept open.

:03:15.:03:22.

The decision went England's way as they

:03:23.:03:24.

Next, imagine if you had to climb 800 metres to get to your home

:03:25.:03:35.

That's what these kids have to do, but a giant staircase

:03:36.:03:39.

Seems like a peaceful place to live, right?

:03:40.:03:44.

It's in the Sichuan province of China, but it's got a bit

:03:45.:03:47.

of an awkward problem - how do you get to

:03:48.:03:49.

People used to have to climb 800 metres up the cliff,

:03:50.:03:54.

with only these rickety ladders to help them.

:03:55.:03:56.

But things are on the way up, quite literally.

:03:57.:04:05.

Steel staircases have been built all the way to the village.

:04:06.:04:08.

Villagers say it's a big help, much safer, and they hope tourists

:04:09.:04:11.

will come and pay them a visit, too.

:04:12.:04:13.

Some very good news for dolphins now.

:04:14.:04:16.

Big numbers of them have been spotted off

:04:17.:04:17.

Conservationists have been been tracking the animals as part

:04:18.:04:21.

of a survey to learn more about them.

:04:22.:04:23.

The Hebrides are home to nearly 70% of Europe's dolphin,

:04:24.:04:25.

An Austrian man has broken his own downhill speed record...

:04:26.:04:33.

He's called Markus Stokl, and he managed to reach a speed

:04:34.:04:41.

of just over 104 miles an hour - that's faster than a car is allowed

:04:42.:04:45.

That's all from me, Newsround's back right here in about half-an-hour.

:04:46.:04:56.

How many Blue Peter presenters does it take to change a light bulb?

:04:57.:05:06.
