at the papers over on the BBC News Channel but now,

:00:00.:00:11.

As the NHS struggles to bal`nce the books one woman claims

:00:12.:00:19.

she's the victim of a row over who pays for tre`tment.

:00:20.:00:23.

Lynsay Stewart's being denidd a potentially life changing operation

:00:24.:00:26.

which she could get on the NHS if she didn't live in Nottingh`mshire.

:00:27.:00:31.

Our Health Correspondent, Rob Sissons, reports.

:00:32.:00:35.

Every few hours, Lynsay frol Kirkby in Ashfield has to use thesd tubes.

:00:36.:00:39.

They are catheters because her bladder doesn't function normally.

:00:40.:00:42.

For years it's been an inconvenient way of life.

:00:43.:00:45.

It affects me every day bec`use I have to be careful where H go

:00:46.:00:49.

where I can't go, and if I can't go, I've got to get home.

:00:50.:00:53.

Which is the only cleanest place that I know.

:00:54.:00:56.

There's been lots of bad news in the post.

:00:57.:01:03.

The NHS has twice said "no" to funding an implant

:01:04.:01:05.

but both her consultant in Nottingham and Lynsay think

:01:06.:01:09.

it could make the world of difference.

:01:10.:01:11.

It's basically like a little pacemaker that will be

:01:12.:01:13.

inserted into the lower part of my back and there will bd little

:01:14.:01:16.

mini electrodes that will bd inserted onto my nerve endings

:01:17.:01:20.

and hopefully that will stilulate my nerves to stimulate my bladder.

:01:21.:01:25.

There is confusion tonight over which part of the NHS

:01:26.:01:28.

is really responsible for commissioning the procedure.

:01:29.:01:31.

Is it NHS England, after all, or local NHS bosses who shotld pay

:01:32.:01:35.

With the reorganisation of the NHS there were a few small areas where

:01:36.:01:43.

We're still working out what some of those are.

:01:44.:01:48.

This has arisen in one of those areas.

:01:49.:01:50.

We are very keen to find a solution for her.

:01:51.:01:52.

It sounds a shambles, wasn't the whole idea of reorganis`tion

:01:53.:01:55.

It was indeed, for the vast majority of patients it has worked.

:01:56.:02:00.

Unfortunately, there are a small number of areas where we

:02:01.:02:03.

suddenly discovered that thdre are issues for individual groups

:02:04.:02:06.

of patients where we find they are not being covered adequatelx

:02:07.:02:10.

I don't know how long I can keep fighting for.

:02:11.:02:16.

Some days I don't feel it's worth it.

:02:17.:02:20.

But then there's other days that I've got to because I want to live

:02:21.:02:24.

Lynsay works as a carer looking after elderly people

:02:25.:02:32.

in their homes but she doesn't feel the NHS is looking after her.

:02:33.:02:38.

Rob, what realistic prospect is there of Lynsay actually

:02:39.:02:40.

getting this procedure? The good news is that there is hope

:02:41.:02:44.

because as a matter of urgency the Clinical Commissioning Group

:02:45.:02:48.

say they will look into this and maybe come up

:02:49.:02:50.

with a local policy. The bad news for Lynsay is that

:02:51.:02:52.

process is likely to take months. I gather now that her local MP

:02:53.:02:57.

is taking up this fight. That Gloria Del Piero,

:02:58.:03:00.

she is the MP for Ashfield She has written some letters

:03:01.:03:02.

to the NHS and also says th`t if she doesn't get

:03:03.:03:07.

a satisfactory result for Lxnsay, she will take it all the wax to

:03:08.:03:09.

the top and the Health Secrdtary. Tributes have been paid to two

:03:10.:03:13.

men who died when their light 70`year`old John Gill,

:03:14.:03:20.

from Belper in Derbyshire and 76`year`old Alan Eaves

:03:21.:03:24.

next to the M1 last Saturdax. Witnesses say the aircraft

:03:29.:03:32.

really, for this terrible loss. A new method of combating btllying

:03:51.:03:56.

is being rolled out to all schools It's called the restorative approach

:03:57.:03:59.

and it encourages pupils to resolve Two colleges have been piloting

:04:00.:04:04.

the scheme for over a year and both have seen a dramathc

improvement in behaviour. You both have to make sure that

:04:10.:04:12.

you allow the other person... At Charnwood College

:04:13.:04:19.

in Loughborough, they have dmbraced These are student volunteers who,

:04:20.:04:21.

over the past year, have brought bully and victhm

together, made them reflect on their We don't say, go do this,

:04:26.:04:28.

go do that. We kind of guide them to cole

to a decision by themselves. Instead of how it used to bd,

:04:35.:04:38.

saying, right you stay therd, you stay there

:04:39.:04:42.

and keeping them separate, you get them to work togethdr to

:04:43.:04:45.

come to a decision It feels a lot more normal talking

:04:46.:04:48.

to someone around your age, more than an older teacher

:04:49.:04:53.

because they understand a lot more The approach which has been used

:04:54.:04:58.

since the late '60s in Denm`rk This year we have seen a reduction

:04:59.:05:03.

in conflicts between students. We have seen a reduction in

:05:04.:05:10.

exclusions, down by 75% and attendance has been improved.

:05:11.:05:14.

It has been very successful. There has been

:05:15.:05:19.

a very positive impact of it. The culture of

:05:20.:05:21.

the school has completely changed. Staff are getting

:05:22.:05:23.

on better with students. Students are getting on better with

:05:24.:05:25.

students and sometimes parents will ask us to have

:05:26.:05:28.

a restorative meeting to be able to get on better

:05:29.:05:31.

with their children. We wanted the opportunity jtst

:05:32.:05:33.

to show you the website... Now with the help of an onlhne

:05:34.:05:37.

support pack, all schools across the city and county are being encouraged

:05:38.:05:40.

to introduce the new approach. Schools will need some

:05:41.:05:44.

support with their training. They won't be able

:05:45.:05:46.

to just go and do that. Schools will be able to look at

:05:47.:05:49.

and think, where should I start I'm interested in this and then

they will have information on Inner`city Babington Collegd

has piloted the scheme Bulling happens in all schools,

:05:55.:06:00.

it's a sad fact of life. I think what we have created

:06:01.:06:05.

and this helps us to create, is the philosophy that you talk

:06:06.:06:08.

about it, you talk about it, if it happens, you talk abott it,

:06:09.:06:11.

if you're thinking about dohng it, This, as I say,
