He met patients who praised the dedication of nursing staff

:00:43.:00:48.

and then talked to nurses anxious about the pressures on the NHS

:00:49.:00:52.

Newark used have its own Accident and Emergency unit but the NHS

:00:53.:01:07.

decision to close it a few xears ago has been hugely controversial here.

:01:08.:01:12.

People are deeply worried about the downgrading of the A here.

:01:13.:01:16.

Labour is pledging a 48`hour access to the GP so you

:01:17.:01:20.

That is good for health services, but it is also good

:01:21.:01:25.

for the hospital as well because you get people coming here

:01:26.:01:28.

So I think health is very mtch on the agenda and part of

:01:29.:01:34.

It is the issue that promptdd Paul Bagley to stand

:01:35.:01:40.

Health care is a labour`intensive business.

:01:41.:01:45.

If you are not employing people to provide it,

:01:46.:01:48.

the service must be being ctt and that is what is happening.

:01:49.:01:51.

We need more doctors and nurses working in the hospital

:01:52.:01:55.

It is also the issue for the Conservative candidate.

:01:56.:01:58.

Today, William Hague was the latest minister to be sden

:01:59.:02:03.

By`elections are hard work, I was elected in one, so we take

:02:04.:02:10.

It was market day in Newark today, but the weather was so awful that

:02:11.:02:19.

there were more TV crews and politicians than shoppers.

:02:20.:02:23.

This may have been an unseasonably cold day, btt

:02:24.:02:26.

in Europe it is getting polhtically hot and it is the issue of the NHS

:02:27.:02:30.

Next tonight ` binge drinking by students.

:02:31.:02:39.

Two East Midlands universities are taking part in a Government`backed

:02:40.:02:42.

pilot project targeting alcohol abuse among undergraduates.

:02:43.:02:46.

The aim is to reduce booze`fuelled crime

:02:47.:02:49.

A busy union bar at the University of Nottingham

And while these students may know their limits, a pilot schemd backed

:02:58.:03:03.

by the Government and National Union of Students is targeting

:03:04.:03:06.

It will encourage them to t`ke the right action.

:03:07.:03:13.

And it requires this to give them the lead.

:03:14.:03:15.

What they're doing is to ensure alcohol is a sensible part of life

:03:16.:03:19.

And it is this kind of behaviour that

:03:20.:03:25.

Residents close to Loughborough University havd

:03:26.:03:28.

complained in the past about late`night student disruptions.

:03:29.:03:31.

The University is also involved in the pilot.

:03:32.:03:34.

A lot of these issues are that students are coming home

:03:35.:03:37.

So we will be looking at making sure they are not as drunk as they

:03:38.:03:45.

are and the consequences thdy can have related to those behaviours.

:03:46.:03:49.

Ideas include promoting healthier lifestyle choices,

:03:50.:03:56.

tackling alcohol`fuelled sttdent initiation ceremonies and pub crawls
