There are concerns about the future of a scheme which it's claimed has

:00:10.:00:13.

eased the pressure on GPs in East Yorkshire.

:00:14.:00:15.

Support is being given to vulnerable and elderly patients to stop them

:00:16.:00:19.

visiting their doctor unnecessarily, but the funding is due

:00:20.:00:21.

to run out shortly. Katy Austin reports.

:00:22.:00:26.

In Bridlington, there's a large elderly population,

:00:27.:00:29.

and a severe shortage of GPs. Doctors say some patients use

:00:30.:00:32.

precious appointment time to discuss complaints medicine can't cure.

:00:33.:00:37.

They're related to poverty, they're related to loneliness,

:00:38.:00:40.

being cold and we've found that we weren't able

:00:41.:00:43.

Well, local council and health services had an idea.

:00:44.:00:53.

They used a pot of government cash to fix things making people

:00:54.:00:56.

unwell, poor or lonely. For 77-year-old retired builder

:00:57.:00:59.

Neil, that meant getting a better heating system.

:01:00.:01:04.

It's made a hell of a difference because there's no problems.

:01:05.:01:09.

I just need to press buttons and I get my system on.

:01:10.:01:12.

Neil was one of the first to benefit.

:01:13.:01:15.

319 people aged 75 or over, were told they could get help -

:01:16.:01:19.

following a phone consultation. 75 of them got health and lifestyle

:01:20.:01:21.

advice, 38 were helped with accommodation or heating.

:01:22.:01:24.

And 182 got benefits advice. That resulted in more than ?300,000

:01:25.:01:28.

being paid out they hadn't known they could claim.

:01:29.:01:32.

I asked this doctor what impact it had.

:01:33.:01:37.

I haven't been seeing my patients as much so that patients that I have

:01:38.:01:41.

been seeing who are coming maybe quite frequently and I was

:01:42.:01:43.

struggling to answer their needs, are now finding alternative sources.

:01:44.:01:47.

But the government's spending watchdog last month said

:01:48.:01:50.

there wasn't evidence projects like this were stopping

:01:51.:01:52.

Those behind this project says it just needs more time.

:01:53.:01:59.

It may ultimately down the line stop people attending hospital.

:02:00.:02:03.

At this early stage, that hasn't shown that position,

:02:04.:02:06.

but there is no reason to think that in the future if we continue

:02:07.:02:09.

to develop that, that wouldn't start to have that impact.

:02:10.:02:12.

Health bosses are desperately hoping to get more funding so they can

:02:13.:02:15.

expand this scheme across the East Riding.

:02:16.:02:17.

They say anything that could take pressure off doctors is priceless.

:02:18.:02:23.

Two people were hurt and ten homes had to be evacuated after a car

:02:24.:02:27.

crashed into a house in Beverley this morning.

:02:28.:02:30.

The accident on Grovehill Road caused a gas leak and people had

:02:31.:02:33.

to leave their homes while it was dealt

:02:34.:02:36.

There's been praise for Lincoln City despite their amazing FA Cup run

:02:37.:02:43.

coming to an end with a 5-0 defeat at Arsenal.

:02:44.:02:46.

The Imps were the first non-league team to reach the quarter-finals

:02:47.:02:50.

of the competition for more than a century.

:02:51.:02:54.

And while they couldn't beat their Premier League opponents,

:02:55.:02:56.

fans say they're proud of what the team achieved.

:02:57.:02:59.

They weren't the headlines they were hoping for in Lincoln this

:03:00.:03:04.

morning, and while the bunting is still up, the

:03:05.:03:07.

Such a change from yesterday when, 9,000 Imps fans travelled

:03:08.:03:13.

to the Emirates, with several hundred more watching

:03:14.:03:16.

Hopes were high this non-league team could carry out

:03:17.:03:22.

And the first half was promising, holding off their opponents

:03:23.:03:27.

But in the second half, Arsenal finally showed the skills

:03:28.:03:33.

that put them 88 league places above Lincoln.

:03:34.:03:35.

Then five minutes later, an unfortunate deflection gave

:03:36.:03:40.

The score sheet then became a who's who of the country's best paid

:03:41.:03:47.

players, when Sanchez... And then Ramsey added to the tally.

:03:48.:03:51.

Well, that's it, Lincoln City's FA Cup dream has come

:03:52.:03:55.

But still, fans here say they couldn't be

:03:56.:04:02.

CHEERING I don't think they deserved 5-0 at all.

:04:03.:04:07.

All: No! Definitely not.

:04:08.:04:09.

They have made so much money from it so really,

:04:10.:04:12.

We could have done a bit better but you can't blame the team.

:04:13.:04:17.

That was a starting Arsenal team, 1-0 up

:04:18.:04:18.

And Lincoln City left the pitch with their heads held high.

:04:19.:04:24.

When we do have an opportunity to reflect, I think we can be really

:04:25.:04:27.

proud of the journey that we've been on in this competition.

:04:28.:04:29.

So we'll make sure we learn from it and make sure

:04:30.:04:32.

Lincoln was hoping for another historic moment, it wasn't to be.

:04:33.:04:36.

But with promotion still to play for and the FA Trophy

:04:37.:04:39.

semi-final this Tuesday, there may still be a chance

:04:40.:04:41.

In Rugby League, Hull Kingston Rovers stay top

:04:42.:04:50.

of the Championship after another big win this afternoon.
