Tuesday's programme. First tonight: Waiting for a

:01:09.:01:11.

hospital appointment. One of the region's biggest trusts has revealed

:01:12.:01:14.

it has the highest ever number of outpatients it's ever had on its

:01:15.:01:17.

waiting list. Figures just released show a little under 13,000

:01:18.:01:20.

outpatients are now waiting for appointments. Derby Hospitals NHS

:01:21.:01:22.

Foundation Trust also has more people who've waited longer than six

:01:23.:01:26.

weeks than ever before. It blames a big surge in referrals from GPs.

:01:27.:01:28.

James Roberson reports. Well, are the waiting time problems

:01:38.:01:50.

160,000 referral. Today, the chief executive of the trust was

:01:51.:01:55.

explaining to BBC radio Derby why the increase has occurred. The

:01:56.:02:01.

hospital says one reason thd waiting lists have gone up is because it has

:02:02.:02:08.

become very popular with people. And their is a high`profile govdrnment

:02:09.:02:09.

their is a high`profile government campaign to get more potenthal

campaign to get more potential cancer lesions seen. Extra funding

:02:12.:02:18.

will pay for more nurses, weekend working and an increase in the

:02:19.:02:25.

cases. We have been given extra money this year in the hope we can

:02:26.:02:29.

clear our backlog and we ard now clear our backlog and we are now

:02:30.:02:35.

beginning to plan how we can use that money to get us back into an

:02:36.:02:38.

even keel. Derbyshire GPs always the fault of the NHS, it

:02:39.:03:18.

could be quicker. It is going to take some time, of course it is,

:03:19.:03:23.

with everything. The trust says it will have to analyse the waiting

:03:24.:03:26.

will have to analyse the wahting lists and recruit extra staff but it

:03:27.:03:31.

hopes to have waiting lines back on track by the end

the wrong direction. Does the government see yet like that? The

:04:57.:05:00.

Prime Minister and his Health Secretary accept there are real

:05:01.:05:04.

pressures on the health service That is because there is growing

waiting times. Two giant wind turbines built in the

:06:03.:06:13.

heart of Derby can't be switched on because they interfere with the

Mike O'Sullivan has this report. They have become a new landlark in

:06:24.:06:34.

Derby. For two months these turbines have been at a standstill. Now it

:06:35.:06:41.

has been explained why, turning the blades at a high speed interferes

with the radar system at East Midlands airport. Usually the their

at new thought. They are working but the two others in Derby cannot be

:07:28.:07:34.

switched on. At East Midlands airport the say they were consulted

:07:35.:07:40.

before they went up. The airport said that they are currently working

:07:41.:07:46.

alongside Severn Trent Water and the technology provider, to install

:07:47.:07:51.

radar technology which will mitigate any effect that the wind turbines

:07:52.:07:56.

will have on the radar at the airport. Airport safety is paramount

:07:57.:08:04.

and will not be compromised. I do not think their is a safety issue

here. The ability we have hdre is here. The ability we have here is

:08:09.:08:13.

that we can install some software that will recognise our turbines and

:08:14.:08:18.

because they do not move we can effectively eliminate that. From the

radar screen. It is hoped they can begin operation later this xear
