The remedy for a shortage of doctors - a change in the law means Jersey

:00:00.:00:16.

could soon have home grown GP's good evening and welcome

:00:17.:00:18.

to the late news from BBC Channel Islands,

:00:19.:00:21.

Visitor numbers are up in Guernsey but transport

:00:22.:00:25.

There are some good increases this year, but when we refer them back to

:00:26.:00:38.

2015, we see there are some way to go.

:00:39.:00:40.

Political moves are underfoot to avoid a GP

:00:41.:00:42.

The Health Minister wants to change the law to allow GP's to train

:00:43.:00:47.

at surgeries on island before they qualify, so they can fill posts

:00:48.:00:50.

It takes years of study and training to become a doctor,

:00:51.:00:57.

and would-be GPs have gone to the UK or further afield before

:00:58.:01:00.

In Jersey, work is being done to attract the next oration

:01:01.:01:06.

of doctors, and make sure they're ready to fill the shoes of GPs

:01:07.:01:09.

We know that eventually older GPs will be retiring.

:01:10.:01:23.

From experience, we are training nurses locally, that

:01:24.:01:25.

if you train them luckily, they tend to stay locally.

:01:26.:01:27.

But we have no provision for training GPs at the present

:01:28.:01:30.

time, other than the rotational, where they get a tasting

:01:31.:01:32.

So it's absolutely about succession planning for GP

:01:33.:01:35.

Trainee doctors would work alongside qualified GPs developing

:01:36.:01:45.

But seeing a trainee would not mean a cut-price appointment.

:01:46.:01:52.

When you have a trainee, they had to be closely supervised.

:01:53.:02:00.

So it is not that they would be charged less, no.

:02:01.:02:04.

GPs in Jersey nurture the relationship tween

:02:05.:02:06.

doctor and patience, and it is hoped these values

:02:07.:02:08.

will appeal to the next generation of doctors.

:02:09.:02:23.

It's nice for them to get a taste of how we do things here.

:02:24.:02:29.

It's suddenly old-fashioned, but in my view, much better

:02:30.:02:31.

It is hoped that by allowing the doctors of the future

:02:32.:02:35.

to hone their skills on the islands, any potential problems

:02:36.:02:37.

Guernsey's airport declared a full emergency this morning

:02:38.:02:41.

when a private plane reported smoke in its cockpit.

:02:42.:02:44.

The single engine aircraft was flying from the UK to Jersey

:02:45.:02:48.

when it had to make an emergency landing in Guernsey.

:02:49.:02:51.

The Airport's General Manager said the plane arrived safely

:02:52.:02:53.

Jersey voters can have their say on the island's proposed

:02:54.:03:00.

The creation of six so-called "super constituencies" will be debated

:03:01.:03:06.

But a scrutiny panel is holding meetings ahead of that to find out

:03:07.:03:12.

The first one will be at St Saviour's Parish Hall

:03:13.:03:17.

Jersey's States garden nursery, which was considered as a potential

:03:18.:03:24.

site for the future hospital, has been put out to lease.

:03:25.:03:28.

Warwick Farm grew plants for the island's parks and gardens

:03:29.:03:31.

but now most of that work has been passed to private companies.

:03:32.:03:35.

A spokesperson from property holdings says rather than let it

:03:36.:03:38.

fall into disrepair the states would rather rent it out to a farmer

:03:39.:03:42.

The lease is available for nine years - while the states decide

:03:43.:03:48.

A boost in business travellers has led to an increase

:03:49.:03:55.

There's been a rise of 2000 people in the first quarter of this year

:03:56.:04:01.

But officials say more improvements are needed.

:04:02.:04:04.

A busy morning in Guernsey's tourist information centre.

:04:05.:04:12.

And for these visitors, a few comments on the island

:04:13.:04:15.

When we think of travelling, we're always trying to fit Guernsey in,

:04:16.:04:33.

it is not that easy, because it's not a stop

:04:34.:04:35.

The latest Government surveys shows there has been

:04:36.:04:44.

a 7% increase in visitors, with just over 2000 more people

:04:45.:04:47.

The number of visitors visiting by sea has increased.

:04:48.:04:56.

The economic development committee was cautious

:04:57.:04:58.

Some really good increases this year, but on the refer back to 2015,

:04:59.:05:04.

Some say that transport remains a concern.

:05:05.:05:10.

The loss of GDP to the island is entirely significant.

:05:11.:05:20.

From the bar 2014, it is over 40,000 passengers.

:05:21.:05:28.

If you asked for the development in GDP terms, it is around ?500.

:05:29.:05:31.

That puts the GDP value at around ?20 million.

:05:32.:05:34.

This coincides with Sark's greatest tourism survey.

:05:35.:05:36.

With there renewed confidence, could the real prospect

:05:37.:05:43.

of a new ferry, the Bailiwick's heading in the right direction.

:05:44.:05:49.

But still has some way to go to get to the numbers of the past.

:05:50.:05:58.

There are calls to return the remains of a Nazi concentration

:05:59.:06:00.

camp survivor home to Jersey after his grave was found

:06:01.:06:03.

Frank Le Villio was deported during the occupation

:06:04.:06:08.

for taking a joyride on a German officers motorbike.

:06:09.:06:12.

He died in England in 1946 from tuberculosis.

:06:13.:06:20.

Mr Le Villio was buried in a pauper's grave.

:06:21.:06:22.

The Constables of St Helier and St Saviour hope to bring him

:06:23.:06:26.

back home, but it could be a difficult process

:06:27.:06:28.

The people of Guernsey now formally own the Little Chapel -

:06:29.:06:33.

one of the islands most famous tourist attractions.

:06:34.:06:35.

The Little Chapel Foundation bought the property deeds today along

:06:36.:06:37.

with a parcel of land nearby for one pound.

:06:38.:06:41.

More investment is planned for the site in the future including

:06:42.:06:43.

improved disabled access and a visitor centre.

:06:44.:06:47.

The Foundation says today is an important milestone

:06:48.:06:50.

for the restoration of the attraction.

:06:51.:06:53.

We have been working on the chapel and doing a lot

:06:54.:06:56.

But now the people Guernsey own it, it's entrust with the Foundation

:06:57.:07:02.

We can go forward with that ownership.

:07:03.:07:06.

We can put a proper business plan in place.

:07:07.:07:12.

Over 1000 school Children in Jersey are being introduced

:07:13.:07:16.

The BBC Ten Pieces Orchestra is playing concerts as part

:07:17.:07:21.

By holding free workshops for children it's hoped

:07:22.:07:25.

a new generation will learn to love the music genre.

:07:26.:07:28.

We sent our cameras along to a packed Opera House

:07:29.:07:30.

Today, we've had two of the three BBC Ten Pieces concerts.

:07:31.:07:43.

It very exciting series in which children learn

:07:44.:07:55.

We learn about all the estimates of the orchestra.

:07:56.:07:58.

They got to hear the instruments, they got to meet the

:07:59.:08:06.

And also they got to hear some of the most exciting and diverse

:08:07.:08:19.

pieces of classical music that there are.

:08:20.:08:22.

So it's just a really great introduction for children to hear

:08:23.:08:26.

all the different characters and different things that

:08:27.:08:30.

I liked how the instruments are played different

:08:31.:08:43.

Humid air across us, that will continue towards the weekend.

:08:44.:09:08.

Increasing risk of seeing more showers. Mist, humid and some

:09:09.:09:12.

showers could be heavy during the course of the day tomorrow. The

:09:13.:09:17.

reason is low and where the error is coming from, from Spain and Portugal

:09:18.:09:21.

and their western side of France. That setup is similar for tomorrow.

:09:22.:09:27.

Hopefully some sunshine, but also sharp showers. More persistent rain

:09:28.:09:31.

getting to us late in the day on Saturday. An overnight feature into

:09:32.:09:35.

Sunday. Sunday is predominantly dry. By then, south-westerly winds which

:09:36.:09:41.

will bring us hopefully more moisture. The showers from earlier

:09:42.:09:46.

today have fizzled out, but more heading our way. Later this evening,

:09:47.:09:51.

more showers will appear and overnight, they could turn out to be

:09:52.:09:56.

heavy in places. Wind from the south, and overnight temperatures no

:09:57.:10:00.

lower than 11. Quite mild. The shower activity eases tomorrow, we

:10:01.:10:05.

may get sunny spells developing from late morning onwards, but once we

:10:06.:10:11.

get more warmth, one or two of these showers likely to be heavy and 16

:10:12.:10:19.

will be the top temperature. Full Spain and Portugal, it's certainly

:10:20.:10:22.

very unsettled over the next couple of days. A lot of showers across

:10:23.:10:26.

France. The whole western side of Europe seeing quite a big change in

:10:27.:10:31.

the type of air and very much more unsettled picture. Saturday is quite

:10:32.:10:36.

bright. We may get away with a lot of dry weather on Saturday and

:10:37.:10:39.

thundering, before the ringtones. Should be gone by Sunday, which is a

:10:40.:10:43.

fine day. Small chance of showers. Mild and mist into Monday. Night.

:10:44.:10:48.

That's your news this Thursday evening, BBC Radio Guernsey

:10:49.:10:50.

and Jersey will be first with with your local news,

:10:51.:10:53.

weather and travel from six tomorrow morning and I'll be back

:10:54.:10:55.

We want to see the economy work for everybody, not

:10:56.:11:05.

Now the weather. , yes a humid dead. We have had

:11:06.:11:08.
