Good evening, I'm Charlie McArdle, welcome to BBC Channel Islands.

:00:00.:00:00.

Jersey's Health Department is criticised on how taxpayers'

:00:07.:00:14.

money is spent for Family Nursing and home care.

:00:15.:00:20.

In the best interests of proper accounting, it should all be laid

:00:21.:00:23.

out and transparent. Changes to charges to

:00:24.:00:24.

improve transparency Plus, work starts on one of Jersey's

:00:25.:00:26.

busiest junctions to make it easier And, winter is not quite done with

:00:27.:00:43.

us yet. Some heavy showers this week, some bright bells, the winds

:00:44.:00:47.

will ease but is still cold. More details from me later in the

:00:48.:00:49.

programme. A lack of transparency

:00:50.:00:53.

and accountability are just some of the criticisms surrounding

:00:54.:00:57.

changes to Government funding for Family Nursing

:00:58.:01:01.

and home care in Jersey. The Health Department is cutting

:01:02.:01:04.

the subsidies it gives to the charity to provide home care

:01:05.:01:08.

services, but a scrutiny report into this has led to questions

:01:09.:01:16.

on how taxpayers' money is being used, as Emma

:01:17.:01:19.

Chambers reports. It's a service that is

:01:20.:01:22.

going to get a lot more expensive for Family Nursing

:01:23.:01:26.

and home care clients. From ?11 an hour, it

:01:27.:01:28.

will double to ?22 an hour. That's because home care

:01:29.:01:31.

provision is moving into the commercial market -

:01:32.:01:33.

putting an end to This led to a scrutiny review -

:01:34.:01:35.

which today has criticised the way tax payers money used to support

:01:36.:01:40.

the charity wasn't The funding for home care

:01:41.:01:42.

was included in a block grant of several million pounds

:01:43.:01:50.

for all sorts of things, which included the district nursing

:01:51.:01:54.

as well the health visitors and children's health services,

:01:55.:01:58.

so all of that was paid for in a lump sum without either

party knowing how it was broken down or having a service

level agreement in place. In the best interests

:02:07.:02:09.

of proper accounting, it should all be laid

:02:10.:02:10.

out and transparant. Both Family Nursing

:02:11.:02:14.

and the Health Minister have refused an interview with the BBC

:02:15.:02:17.

on the lack of transparency when it comes to funding -

:02:18.:02:21.

but in statements, they both say they acknowledge the report's

:02:22.:02:25.

findings and are working closely with each other to finalise

:02:26.:02:28.

the details of their The scrutiny review also highlighted

:02:29.:02:31.

other issues, including a lack of communication

:02:32.:02:36.

and an unrealistic timescale, which they say has helped delay

:02:37.:02:41.

the grant cut by an extra year. We wanted to make sure

:02:42.:02:45.

that the clients of family nursing and home care wouldn't be left

:02:46.:02:48.

without support, financial support if they needed it, and also,

:02:49.:02:51.

as a result of our report, we trust the minister has extended

:02:52.:03:02.

time in which these clients can apply for the benefits

:03:03.:03:05.

they might need. Which should come into effect

:03:06.:03:06.

later this year, to help the extra costs these clients will have

:03:07.:03:09.

to face when the grant Guernsey's emergency department

:03:10.:03:12.

is overhauling the way It means some simple

:03:13.:03:24.

procedures will be cheaper, while more complex cases

:03:25.:03:29.

will cost more. The States took over

:03:30.:03:32.

the Emergency Department from a private company

:03:33.:03:34.

in September last year. Some say you can't put

:03:35.:03:36.

a price on your health. In Guernsey, you have

:03:37.:03:42.

to pay for primary care. And that includes trips

:03:43.:03:47.

to the Emergency Department. This board lists all the treatments

:03:48.:03:50.

you could be charged for. What we have done is try to make

:03:51.:04:02.

them more open and transparent so the public no more upfront, the

:04:03.:04:05.

charges now will include all the additional 's that were previously

:04:06.:04:11.

added on, like a blood test or inoculation, it's all included in

:04:12.:04:14.

the categories now, sorts more open to the public to understand what the

:04:15.:04:20.

charges will be. Behind me is a blue board that lists the prices of the

:04:21.:04:24.

treatments here at the emergency department. That is all set to

:04:25.:04:28.

change on Wednesday, to include more transparency so people understand

:04:29.:04:31.

what they are charged for, and because the States are providing the

:04:32.:04:39.

care, not at private. We are told that some treatments will be

:04:40.:04:42.

cheaper, but some will be more expensive.

:04:43.:04:46.

For example, if you go into the Emergency Department

:04:47.:04:48.

with a finger injury before the first March, it'll cost ?172.

:04:49.:04:51.

And under the new charging structure, it'll cost ?155.

:04:52.:04:53.

But if you present with abdominal pain, the fee and treatment

:04:54.:04:56.

The States insists it's not charging for profit.

:04:57.:05:03.

Is 3.7 million to run the department on an annual basis. We do believe

:05:04.:05:09.

the charges we have set will only be about 2.2 million estimated and the

:05:10.:05:13.

rest will be picked up from the budget, so it's not the protractor

:05:14.:05:16.

make a budget or even cover the full costs, we're just trying to refer

:05:17.:05:19.

from what the service means. So the States has put

:05:20.:05:20.

a price on your health, but it hopes most of the new charges

:05:21.:05:22.

will ease the financial pain. A 57-year-old man from Jersey

:05:23.:05:32.

has died while skiing Mark Le Sueur from Trinity,

:05:33.:05:34.

who was known to many as Frank, was skiing in the resort

Justin and Victoria... The work of a forgotten

:06:28.:06:29.

postman poet from Devon, born nearly 200 years ago,

:06:30.:06:31.

is being revived for a new audience. You may have noticed some

:06:32.:06:39.

changes to the layout at Green Street

:06:40.:06:41.

roundabout in Jersey. A new pedestrian crossing

:06:42.:06:43.

and new kerb lines have been put in place before resurfacing

:06:44.:06:46.

in a couple of weeks. They're all part of plans

junctions and work has already started to make it easier

safer for everyone. We've tested it in the office

:07:17.:07:18.

and we've had the bus company down here on trials with large vehicles,

:07:19.:07:22.

so we're confident that it won't cause an obstacle course -

it should just make There's also a new zebra

:07:25.:07:27.

crossing at Green Street which was included in plans

:07:28.:07:34.

for the new police station. It is to give pedestrians and other

:07:35.:07:45.

safe place to cross. It was because of the police station being built.

:07:46.:07:47.

There was concern raised in the States that the crossing

:07:48.:07:49.

facilities for people coming through Snow Hill car park

:07:50.:07:51.

through to the police station could be improved and we did

:07:52.:07:54.

an assessment of that and decided that we could install a pair

:07:55.:07:57.

of zebra crossings on Green Street, just to the north of the roundabout.

:07:58.:08:00.

Work to resurface the roundabout will start in two weeks and it's

:08:01.:08:03.

being done after seven o'clock in the evening and on Sundays

:08:04.:08:06.

Sport now and Guernsey FC beat fellow strugglers

:08:07.:08:12.

East Grinstead Town on Saturday to put more

:08:13.:08:14.

distance between themselves and the Ryman South relegation zone.

:08:15.:08:19.

Dave Rihoy capitalised on a defensive mistake and scored

:08:20.:08:24.

the only goal of the game - the Green Lions held

:08:25.:08:31.

on for the remaining 83 minutes to secure three points.

:08:32.:08:35.

We've had some good performances recently, certainly the last two are

:08:36.:08:41.

an example. Some of the road this year, we have out what we deserved,

:08:42.:08:44.

but today I'm pleased with the players because they deserve the

:08:45.:08:48.

three points, they deserve to enjoy it, because the shifts they put in

:08:49.:08:50.

was incredible. Well done to them. We've had it all weather wise today,

:08:51.:08:52.

and there's a red flood warning for Jersey's south coast this

:08:53.:08:56.

evening, with high tide and strong winds expected to come together just

:08:57.:08:58.

after seven and there is a similar warning for Guernsey's

:08:59.:09:01.

coastal roads. With the latest forecast,

:09:02.:09:03.

here's David Braine. Hello. The good news is the winds

:09:04.:09:19.

will eventually ease, but at the moment the coincidence of spring

:09:20.:09:23.

tides, low-pressure and the strength of wind giving us at continued risk

:09:24.:09:28.

of some coastal flooding. Not just for Jersey, but some of the roads

:09:29.:09:34.

around Guernsey. The times of high water this evening around 730. The

:09:35.:09:39.

forecast for all of us for the next couple of days remains blustery, but

:09:40.:09:42.

it hasn't stopped you getting outside and taking some pictures.

:09:43.:09:47.

This was a lovely picture. Rather leaden skies, it has to say. The

:09:48.:09:55.

showers will continue, some sunshine, the winds eventually

:09:56.:09:58.

easing, but probably not happening until we get to Wednesday,

:09:59.:10:02.

especially in the Thursday. We have got areas of low-pressure swirling

:10:03.:10:06.

around us at the moment. One weather system moves away into the near but

:10:07.:10:11.

another one follows. There are the afternoon tomorrow, you may get a

:10:12.:10:15.

break in the cloud around lunchtime, but then showers turn up again. The

:10:16.:10:20.

nature is that one location will get huge downpours, but the next will

:10:21.:10:24.

stay dry with sunshine. By Wednesday, slightly less colder,

:10:25.:10:29.

milder air, more persistent rain at a time, then on Thursday the showers

:10:30.:10:32.

return. Plenty of showers across as overnight. It will feel quite cold,

:10:33.:10:37.

blustery winds from the southwest, with a minimum temperature of two or

:10:38.:10:42.

three Celsius. Even with those sorts of temperatures, not freezing, and

:10:43.:10:46.

the just above, there was a good chance that the showers will

:10:47.:10:49.

continue. Tomorrow morning, we lose the first line of showers, through

:10:50.:10:54.

the morning it is bright and largely dry, the sunshine will be out for a

while although it doesn't feel warm. Then another bunch of showers

:10:58.:11:01.

common, eight or nine Celsius the maximum temperature. There are our

:11:02.:11:10.

times of high waters. Some pretty big waves, most of the west facing

:11:11.:11:14.

beaches will be messy if not blown out because of the strength of the

:11:15.:11:16.

wind. And the coastal water forecast... More persistent rain for

:11:17.:11:28.

time on Wednesday morning. At that brighter in the afternoon. Thursday

:11:29.:11:32.

the best day of the week. More clouds turning up on Friday. Thank

:11:33.:11:39.

you very much. There is something that could be handy.

:11:40.:11:40.

A long-buried sewer has been discovered at Guernsey's Victorian

:11:41.:11:42.

Volunteers found it after searching for a reason as to why vegetables

:11:43.:11:46.

and flowers would not grow in one particular area.

:11:47.:11:48.

The complete Victorian septic drainage system is thought

:11:49.:11:52.

It's time for the sport now and Natalie's here with the winners

:16:48.:16:50.

Only if you hand me the right envelope!

:16:51.:16:56.

Obvious winners from yesterday were Exeter Chiefs' players

:16:57.:16:59.

representing their countries who shone on the big stage.

:17:00.:17:02.

Jack Nowell and Mikele Campagnaro scored three tries between them

:17:03.:17:07.

With the details of this and the rest of the rugby,

:17:08.:17:11.

It was Exeter's Italian who took centre stage at Twickenham.

:17:12.:17:19.

Centre Michele Campagnaro waltzed through the English defence to score

:17:20.:17:22.

a wonderful solo try giving the current grand slam

:17:23.:17:25.

The chief winger was brought on from the bench and scored two late tries.

:17:26.:17:34.

First he went over in the corner to bring up a bonus point

:17:35.:17:37.

for Eddie Jones's men before taking a pass from team-mate

:17:38.:17:41.

Henry Slade to bundle over for his second of the game.

:17:42.:17:45.

The win not only keeps England on course for another grand slam,

:17:46.:17:51.

but it also extends their winning run to 17 games.

:17:52.:17:56.

Despite being without a number of star names, the Exeter Chiefs

:17:57.:17:59.

still managed to claim an impressive win over Newcastle Falcons and keep

:18:00.:18:03.

pressure on Wasps at the top of the premiership table.

:18:04.:18:07.

The visitors led for most of the first half, but this

:18:08.:18:10.

full-length score from top try scorer James Short kept the Chiefs

:18:11.:18:13.

Further tries from Harry Williams, Sam Skinner and a second of the game

:18:14.:18:20.

from Short gave the side an added bonus point in a 35-16 win.

:18:21.:18:27.

In the championship, the Cornish Pirates ran in five

:18:28.:18:30.

tries as they thrashed second from bottom Rotherham 34-5.

:18:31.:18:34.

The conditions were tough at Mennaye Field and a late

:18:35.:18:37.

John Stevens try secured the bonus point for the Pirates, which moves

:18:38.:18:41.

There's a lot of rugby to be played and it's quite tight up there.

:18:42.:18:47.

We are one point off third and fourth now,

:18:48.:18:49.

The victory has extended their unbeaten run to seven

:18:50.:18:53.

Well done to the Plymouth Raiders who've made it through to the final

:18:54.:19:01.

of the BBL Trophy after a tense encounter at the weekend.

:19:02.:19:05.

They were playing Worcester Wolves in the second

:19:06.:19:07.

They lost 90-83, but won overall on aggregate,

:19:08.:19:13.

having taken an 18-point lead through from the first leg.

:19:14.:19:16.

They'll now play the Leicester Riders in the final in Glasgow

:19:17.:19:19.

on Sunday March 19th - a meeting of the two oldest

:19:20.:19:23.

Football and Plymouth Argyle stay second in League 2 after drawing

:19:24.:19:29.

with fellow promotion chasers Luton at the weekend.

:19:30.:19:33.

It was a gritty encounter at Kennilworth Road where the home

:19:34.:19:35.

Argyle equalised through Craig Tanner on the end

:19:36.:19:39.

Tomorrow evening, Argyle play Notts County at

:19:40.:19:44.

Exeter City fought back from two goals down to salvage a point

:19:45.:19:50.

On the stroke of half-time, Ollie Watkins got the first

:19:51.:19:55.

and in stoppage time, Reuben Reid added the second.

:19:56.:19:58.

Tomorrow, the Grecians are at Crawley hoping

:19:59.:20:00.

to get their promotion push back on track.

:20:01.:20:05.

In the National League, Torquay lost to fellow strugglers

:20:06.:20:08.

The Gulls did take the lead though when Luke Young took aim

:20:09.:20:12.

The visitors were then forced to put an outfield player in goal

:20:13.:20:18.

and Torquay soon took advantage, as Brett Williams ran

:20:19.:20:21.

The work of a forgotten poet from Devon, born

:20:49.:20:50.

nearly 200 years ago, is being revived for a new audience.

:20:51.:20:53.

Edward Capern was a postman in north Devon

:20:54.:20:57.

in the 1800s and composed his poems as he walked each day between

:20:58.:21:00.

Yes, he wrote more than 600 poems and had four books

:21:01.:21:04.

published, winning plaudits from the Prime Minister and all

:21:05.:21:07.

He became known nationally as the Postman Poet.

:21:08.:21:12.

Our north Devon reporter Andrea Ormsby has the story.

:21:13.:21:17.

Walking in the footsteps of the Postman Poet.

:21:18.:21:22.

He used to walk this route, a 13 mile round trip.

:21:23.:21:24.

He would have talked to the labourers working

:21:25.:21:26.

in the field, because all the farm work was very labour-intensive

:21:27.:21:30.

at that time in the mid-19th century and he got to know

:21:31.:21:33.

many of the labourers and wrote about them in his poems.

:21:34.:21:40.

"Oh the postman's is as happy a life as anyone's.

:21:41.:21:49.

"Wondering where dragonflies play and brooks sing soft and slow.

:21:50.:21:52.

"And watching the lark as he soars on high to carol in yonder cloud.

:21:53.:21:55.

"He sings in his labour and why not I?

:21:56.:21:57.

Liz is now publishing two new books about Edward Capern -

:21:58.:22:01.

a novel about his life and a selection of his poems.

:22:02.:22:04.

This poor postman, and he was poor, walking the Devon lanes

:22:05.:22:08.

and loving his work and writing poems about the countryside.

:22:09.:22:18.

# Give me the bright bird palaces Where joy delights to dwell.

:22:19.:22:25.

Capern had intended for some of his poetry to be sung

:22:26.:22:27.

and so along with the books, a CD is being released.

:22:28.:22:30.

# Tell the listening world the draft was most divine.

:22:31.:22:34.

You can feel the pace of his poetry.

:22:35.:22:37.

The guy had to walk a long way everyday, six miles

:22:38.:22:39.

there and six miles back, so you can feel his walking pace

:22:40.:22:43.

in the poetry and some of that has come out in the music,

:22:44.:22:46.

It has actually been, in some ways, quite easy to set to music,

:22:47.:22:51.

because of that, because the words have got that rhythm already in it.

:22:52.:23:05.

This is where Edward Capern is buried.

:23:06.:23:10.

That is the bell he used to ring to ask people to bring

:23:11.:23:21.

The Postman Poet may be gone, but his spell is still here

:23:22.:23:26.

and now his poetry is being brought back to life once more

:23:27.:23:29.

Time for the weather now. We have had everything today. Winter has

:23:30.:24:05.

returned and there is not a great deal of change. Bitterly cold for

:24:06.:24:10.

many overnight tonight and they shall those that have been readily

:24:11.:24:14.

falling as rain may well fall to sleet and snow and not just for high

:24:15.:24:18.

ground. You have been out taking pictures again. It was sunny along

:24:19.:24:27.

the coast of Cornwall. Also some shower cloud around and that has

:24:28.:24:30.

been the feature over the last few hours. Thank you for all of those.

:24:31.:24:37.

We continue to see some heavy showers tonight and tomorrow.

:24:38.:24:41.

Briefly in between the showers some sunshine but a blustery wind and

:24:42.:24:46.

that will be a feature tomorrow. The winds are pretty lively. There are

:24:47.:24:52.

holes in the cloud every now and again, they give us some sunshine

:24:53.:24:56.

but allow some clear skies at night which will allow the temperatures to

:24:57.:25:03.

drop. Tonight will be a cold night. Several weather front is wrapped

:25:04.:25:07.

around a complex area of low pressure. They continued to produce

:25:08.:25:13.

showers. By Wednesday, perhaps along the south coast some more persistent

:25:14.:25:17.

rain and then back to the showery regime. Slightly less cold air on

:25:18.:25:25.

Thursday. You can see the nature of the showers that we have had today,

:25:26.:25:30.

the brighter colours here, that is where the showers have been quite

:25:31.:25:34.

heavy but this is earlier today with these guys looked pretty

:25:35.:25:41.

threatening. That blustery wind which made it feel bitterly cold.

:25:42.:25:47.

For all of us, wildlife, flora and fauna it is a return to winter for

:25:48.:25:52.

tonight and for a good part of tomorrow. Some of the showers

:25:53.:25:56.

tonight are likely to be heavy and a good chance they will fall as sleet.

:25:57.:26:02.

Some as hail, some over high ground as snow and the showers keep on

:26:03.:26:06.

coming right through to the end of the night but in between there will

:26:07.:26:11.

be clear skies and temperatures could be as low as zero in places.

:26:12.:26:18.

The risk of Frost and ice tomorrow morning but for a good part of the

:26:19.:26:23.

morning, it will be dry. This next line of showers moves through quite

:26:24.:26:29.

fast. Some sunshine but every now and again, a shower well will spoil

:26:30.:26:34.

the day. Temperatures of eight, 9 degrees. Forecasts for the Isles of

:26:35.:26:39.

Scilly is for a blustery day, some sunshine but the risk of heavy

:26:40.:26:49.

showers. Times of high water. And for our surface, most of the beaches

:26:50.:26:53.

are likely to be pretty choppy and big waves, between eight and 12

:26:54.:26:59.

feet. The coastal waters forecasts has westerly winds, showers for a

:27:00.:27:06.

while, a spell of more prolonged rain and sunshine and showers for

:27:07.:27:14.

the rest of the day. Gloomy as we had to the rest of this week. A lot

:27:15.:27:19.

of cloud around on Wednesday. Thursday is somewhat drier before we

:27:20.:27:25.

see further outbreaks of rain on Friday and brisk Southwest winds. We

:27:26.:27:35.

will have more on those proposals for talky harbour-side on our late

:27:36.:27:39.

news but from all of us here, good night.

:27:40.:27:55.

To be in the Lords, you have to be punctual...

:27:56.:27:57.

literally have to slam the door in somebody's face.

:27:58.:28:03.
