from me, and on This is East Midlands Today with

:00:00.:00:14.

Dominic Heale and me, Anne Davies. Tonight ` could the violent death of

:00:15.:00:18.

a Mum and her young son have been prevented? Good evening. Also

:00:19.:00:34.

tonight a money`saving merger, the Fire Brigade and police did cheer

:00:35.:00:40.

our headquarters in Derbyshire. And why are thousands of patients

:00:41.:00:45.

missing their appointments? And if you have got it, flog it. The

:00:46.:00:53.

experts are in a spin. I cannot do cartwheels, but if I could, I would

:00:54.:01:04.

have done one! Welcome to the programme. First tonight: The former

:01:05.:01:09.

partner of a woman killed by a mentally ill man says he believes

her death COULD have 0 mentally ill man says he believes

:01:12.:01:12.

her death COULD have been prevented. Robert Barlow's comments follow the

:01:13.:01:15.

publication of a Serious Case Review into the deaths of Rachael Slack and

:01:16.:01:19.

her young son who were killed in their Derbyshire cottage. The report

:01:20.:01:23.

says their deaths were unpredictable and unpreventable, but lessons have

:01:24.:01:27.

been learnt. Namely, the sharing of information between different

:01:28.:01:31.

agencies. It's now been improved, as has their record keeping. And health

:01:32.:01:38.

officials now ALSO assess the impact of a mentally ill patient on their

:01:39.:01:40.

family and 0 of a mentally ill patient on their

:01:41.:01:41.

family and carers. James Roberson reports. On June two, 2010, police

:01:42.:01:50.

were called to this cottage and found inside the bodies of Rachel

:01:51.:02:01.

and her son and her father. `` the Child's father. Her former partner

:02:02.:02:06.

had killed them both and then himself. The report today says all

:02:07.:02:15.

three deaths were on preventable. `` unpreventable. Very sadly it could

:02:16.:02:24.

not have been predicted or indeed prevented. Rachel's partner at the

:02:25.:02:30.

time of the deaths said the deaths were preventable, he maintains the

:02:31.:02:34.

police should have told Rachel she was at high risk of being killed by

:02:35.:02:43.

the man. If you get a call from the police saying your partner is at

:02:44.:02:46.

high risk of homicide you would take notice of what you have to do. If we

:02:47.:02:57.

now assess the victim as I'd risk of homicide we make that absolutely

:02:58.:03:02.

explicit, we go through that in a documented form. The sign that off

:03:03.:03:12.

to see the understand the risk. The health service criticised for

:03:13.:03:19.

concentrating on the killer and not his victims have been criticised. We

:03:20.:03:26.

have a wider understanding of the family and the child around an

:03:27.:03:34.

individual now. In this man's case in terms of his mental health, we

:03:35.:03:39.

now understand the impact of those behaviours on the child and wider

:03:40.:03:47.

family. All concerned say lessons have 0 0

:03:48.:03:47.

The result of this is to make a safer place tomorrow for future

Rachel's. I am going now by a representative of the domestic abuse

charity. What is your reaction? This does not chime with the findings of

:04:17.:04:19.

the coroner sitting with a Judy over a five`week period three months ago.

:04:20.:04:25.

This review was done three years ago and since then police say lessons

:04:26.:04:30.

have been learned, people who are risk are called and we are also

:04:31.:04:36.

called the those more communication between agencies. The findings of

:04:37.:04:42.

this review was only published today. It is seriously flawed. The

:04:43.:04:49.

police themselves had assessed Rachel and Auden as being at high

:04:50.:04:55.

risk of domestic, side and yet they failed to inform her. I know it has

:04:56.:05:02.

only just been released but it was done three years ago and all the

:05:03.:05:06.

agencies have told us they have changed since then. This flies in

:05:07.:05:15.

the face of the coroner and Julie's findings in our recent inquest. They

:05:16.:05:20.

listened to evidence for five weeks and the evidence was that the police

:05:21.:05:28.

failed to inform Rachel that she and her child were 0

:05:29.:05:29.

failed to inform Rachel that she and her child were at serious risk of

:05:30.:05:35.

domestic, side. That is a major omission from this serious case

:05:36.:05:40.

review. I do not see how they can where lessons. What do you want to

:05:41.:05:50.

see happen now? A public enquiry into the police and state agencies

:05:51.:05:55.

responds to cases of domestic violence. Clearly there is a major

:05:56.:05:59.

problem in this country, women and children are not getting the

:06:00.:06:11.

protection they deserve. We need to understand what the systemic

:06:12.:06:16.

problems are because clearly there are systemic failure is going on

:06:17.:06:22.

across the country. We have had numerous inquests which have found

:06:23.:06:25.

state agencies failing to protect women and children, this has to

:06:26.:06:35.

stop. Still to come, after two day's rather wintry mix, what does

:06:36.:06:41.

the forecast have in store? Rain, rain and more rain. It is set to

:06:42.:06:47.

turn unsettled tomorrow as wet and windy weather arrives to take us

:06:48.:06:52.

into the weekend. I will have the full forecast later. Next tonight, a

:06:53.:06:59.

cost`saving idea from two of our emergency services. The police force

:07:00.:07:03.

and Fire Service in Derbyshire are looking at the possibility of having

:07:04.:07:06.

a new SHARED headquarters.It would be built on the site of the current

:07:07.:07:12.

police HQ in Ripley. Our reporter Simon Hare is there now. Simon, how

:07:13.:07:24.

would this work? This is Derbyshire police headquarters but it could

:07:25.:07:28.

also soon leave home to Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service. That is the

:07:29.:07:34.

plan that is at a very early stage and it would need planning

:07:35.:07:38.

permission. The police announced earlier this week it wants to

:07:39.:07:44.

replace two buildings on this site because they are crumbling. The Fire

:07:45.:07:48.

Service headquarters building in Derby is also said to be very

:07:49.:07:55.

outdated. It will be sold off as part of these plans to help fund the

:07:56.:08:00.

project. The man in charge of police purse strings says it is all a

:08:01.:08:10.

matter of good timing. Old buildings need money spent on them or are

:08:11.:08:16.

expensive to run, it is either that or we look for a replacement. It was

:08:17.:08:21.

quite fortunate both of us had a similar need at the same time. Both

:08:22.:08:29.

the police and Fire Department at the moment are having to make big

:08:30.:08:34.

savings, the Fire Brigade Union will hope this could see the number of

:08:35.:08:38.

proposed closures of fire stations could be reduced. There could be

:08:39.:08:45.

losses of jobs in backroom staff but we are reassured this will not

:08:46.:08:51.

affect front line policing and they could be a new joint police and Fire

:08:52.:08:55.

Service headquarters here within the next two or three years. Next

:08:56.:09:01.

tonight, the huge number of missed appointments in the NHS. Last year,

under the weather, not herself. This 15 recall has a bad chest and the

:09:38.:09:43.

doctors are busy but not everyone who books shows up. The appointments

:09:44.:09:50.

are precious, if they cannot make it we should be able to cancel it so we

:09:51.:09:54.

can give it to somebody else who needs it. Hand on heart I have

missed a couple but I do not like to miss them. Why was that? I do not

:10:03.:10:08.

remember honestly, it was a while ago now. In Nottingham a survey of

:10:09.:10:16.

practices revealed the range of missed appointments, from one in 100

:10:17.:10:27.

at a particular GP practice to one in five at a smaller one. They have

:10:28.:10:31.

been doing things to make improvements, text in patient

:10:32.:10:39.

mobiles and booking only for that same day. Our number is low at just

:10:40.:10:57.

under 5%. The cost is ?5.5 million per year which would pay for 687 hit

operations or for 261 nurses every year. Alternatively it could pay for

five MRI scanners. Posters will go on buses and around the city from

the Woodlinkin Citroen Centre, near Codnor in Derbyshire last night. The

fire re`ignited in the early hours of this morning. It severely damaged

a workshop at the garage on the A610 Nottingham Road. Firefighters feared

there could also have been an explosion. If it had got inside the

property they were oxygen and are settling cylinders which pose a

released a statement describing how their lives had been turned upside

April. The City Council says it has to make savings of almost ?20

million. The Labour led authorities also agreed to cuts to voluntary

groups, public health and street cleaning and the collection of brown

:14:37.:14:40.

bins. Leicestershire police say they've seen a massive increase in

:14:41.:14:44.

reports of male rape and sexual assault. They say there were 141

:14:45.:14:53.

cases reported in the county last year ` a 75% rise on the number two

:14:54.:14:57.

years earlier. Officers say they believe the real figure is much

:14:58.:15:00.

higher. They've launched a campaign today urging victims to come

:15:01.:15:03.

forward. It is really disappointing that these figures are so low, we

:15:04.:15:08.

believe it is for many reasons including fair, embarrassment and

:15:09.:15:12.

shame. I would encourage anyone to come forward and report these

:15:13.:15:17.

defences to us because it is not right that perpetrators get away

with such horrific crime. A government minister turned to pedal

power today to big up the 'Big Society'. Francis Maude was visiting

a smoothie company in Nottinghamshire. As well as making

fruit drinks, the firm also helps people with learning difficulties

pick up skills for work. Our reporter Eleanor Garnier was there.

:15:33.:15:44.

It is pedal power that drives production at this smoothie bar. The

:15:45.:15:50.

Cabinet minister did his bit today to help this social enterprise. It

a flood, it is about encouraging us to do that, not just when their is a

strong where people do more things together for their communities and

in their communities, this is a classic example. For these people be

risk is rugby? An average professional player suffers

ten years ago it was a badge of honour to have a concussion because

it meant you got stuck in for the lads. Now we have to look at what we
