Could do better. so it's goodbye from me

:00:00.:00:08.

Inspectors issue their latest report on Leicester's NHS hospitals.

:00:09.:00:12.

The report might be new but the results are the same,

:00:13.:00:16.

all three of Leicester's hospitals require improvement.

:00:17.:00:19.

Now pharmacists are bolstering the NHS front line.

:00:20.:00:28.

Also tonight, a multi-million pound boost for our region to encourage

:00:29.:00:31.

more people to walk or use one of these to get to work.

:00:32.:00:36.

Plus, you'll never guess who is the special visitor

:00:37.:00:38.

Welcome to Thursday's programme with Dominic Heale

:00:39.:00:55.

All three of Leicester's hospitals still require improvement.

:00:56.:01:02.

That's the verdict of the health watchdog,

:01:03.:01:04.

The hospitals were inspected last year.

:01:05.:01:07.

While the report praised staff for being caring,

:01:08.:01:11.

it said more than 40 services need to do better.

:01:12.:01:22.

The news that the University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust

:01:23.:01:25.

A previous inspection in April 2014 reached the same conclusion.

:01:26.:01:30.

I'm actually very pleased with some aspects of the report, I think

:01:31.:01:37.

I'm very pleased for our staff who have been judged to be

:01:38.:01:42.

caring across the board across the three sites.

:01:43.:01:43.

Your overall review is still the same as in April 2014?

:01:44.:01:46.

Yes, it was, but the chief inspector goes out of his way in this

:01:47.:01:49.

statement to say that, although we are in the same banding,

:01:50.:01:52.

The Care Quality Commission team inspected eight core services

:01:53.:02:02.

across the three hospitals, LRI, the General and the Glenfield.

:02:03.:02:09.

In one area, the effectiveness of congenital heart

:02:10.:02:11.

services at the Glenfield, it has been rated as outstanding.

:02:12.:02:21.

In contrast, the response of the existing A

:02:22.:02:23.

unit at the Leicester Royal Infirmary has

:02:24.:02:25.

Since the report, 55 areas like intensive

:02:26.:02:28.

care at all three sites, and medical care at the General

:02:29.:02:30.

But 41 areas including end of life care, outpatients and maternity,

:02:31.:02:34.

But this is an extremely large organisation

:02:35.:02:41.

It is something of an oil tanker, with very complex patients,

:02:42.:02:46.

and ever-increasing numbers of patients coming to us.

:02:47.:02:48.

So it is not the stuff of overnight miracles.

:02:49.:02:52.

It is the stuff of steady effort and commitment

:02:53.:02:54.

The CQC report says that, although the trust is at the same

:02:55.:03:00.

level it was in 2014, improvements have been made.

:03:01.:03:07.

The new A unit which will help ease the pressure is due to open

:03:08.:03:10.

Well, it's not just our hospitals facing unprecedented pressure.

:03:11.:03:19.

GPs are under massive strain and there aren't

:03:20.:03:21.

Greater use of pharmacists is being seen as one way forward.

:03:22.:03:26.

Our health correspondent, Rob Sissons is at a pharmacy

:03:27.:03:28.

I am at Moin's Pharmacy and Wellbeing Centre.

:03:29.:03:43.

They hope to ease pressure at GP surgeries. I have been looking at

:03:44.:03:53.

how they have been using pharmacists in the NHS more on the front nine,

:03:54.:03:59.

inside GP surgeries. This is that one case in Nottingham.

:04:00.:04:09.

Now at the Well Spring Surgery, there is someone new to turn to.

:04:10.:04:21.

Here is a clinical pharmacist who can help patients

:04:22.:04:23.

If you cannot get into your doctor, you can try to see someone else.

:04:24.:04:29.

This GP recognises some may see this as replacing doctors.

:04:30.:04:33.

He says this is about complementing the GP role.

:04:34.:04:35.

You get a pharmacy check, they are looking at the medicines,

:04:36.:04:39.

they have time with patients to explain what the medicines

:04:40.:04:45.

are, the interactions, and gives health education.

:04:46.:04:47.

Suzanne is another patient with diabetes and asthma.

:04:48.:04:50.

The pharmacist is able to give her tips on medication

:04:51.:04:53.

It takes the pressure off the doctors which these

:04:54.:05:07.

Pharmacists are experts in medication and highly trained.

:05:08.:05:13.

The one here has been expanding his role.

:05:14.:05:16.

Moving on to clinics is what we are talking about,

:05:17.:05:22.

having my own clinics other than for drug reviews.

:05:23.:05:32.

And later progressing to minor ailments which will accounts for 40

:05:33.:05:34.

There are 48 pharmacists in the East Midlands

:05:35.:05:37.

NHS England now wants to see many more.

:05:38.:05:40.

I am at Moin's Pharmacy and Wellbeing Centre.

:05:41.:05:45.

Una chemist here and in market harbour. You think we should be

:05:46.:05:50.

making more use of places like this to ease the pressure on GPs and

:05:51.:05:53.

hospitals. Definitely. Being among the most

:05:54.:05:59.

trusted professions in the Wells, it is finally great to see the NHS is

:06:00.:06:04.

backing pharmacists to go into surgeries. We have such a great

:06:05.:06:09.

resource in community pharmacy. You get forgotten by customers, they

:06:10.:06:12.

don't think to go to the pharmacy but head to the GP.

:06:13.:06:16.

Simply because we are not empowered to make that difference. They come

:06:17.:06:24.

in, and... You don't think the NHS is sending

:06:25.:06:27.

enough services here like diabetes screening?

:06:28.:06:33.

Yes, we can support long-term conditions like asthma, diabetes,

:06:34.:06:42.

COPD. Prevention is better than cure. Pharmacies are well placed to

:06:43.:06:48.

provide that education for our communities.

:06:49.:06:50.

Do you think in ten years, I have known you for years, will we be

:06:51.:06:54.

having this same conversation or will we sort this -- Will we see

:06:55.:06:59.

more use of pharmacists? I would like to think in ten years

:07:00.:07:02.

we will have a very different conversation. Historically we had

:07:03.:07:06.

this conversation ten years ago and not much has changed. If we want the

:07:07.:07:10.

health service to improve we need to make a commitment and invest in the

:07:11.:07:15.

community pharmacy. Thank you for joining me. This is

:07:16.:07:20.

one area being looked at to ease the pressure on the NHS.

:07:21.:07:22.

torch came to the aid of a Derbyshire holidaymaker.

:07:23.:07:26.

Tim Robinson was on holiday in Dorset earlier this month

:07:27.:07:29.

when he was badly injured falling from rocks.

:07:30.:07:31.

More than ?6.5 million is to be spent on encouraging people

:07:32.:07:44.

across the East Midlands to walk or cycle to work.

:07:45.:07:46.

The funding was announced by the Transport Minister Andrew Jones

:07:47.:07:49.

It's part of a ?64 million investment.

:07:50.:07:52.

The Government hopes it'll make people's journeys to work

:07:53.:07:54.

Today's announcement is about a national announcement.

:07:55.:08:14.

The hope is that, rather than starting the engine,

:08:15.:08:16.

thousands more of us will be putting on a bike helmet or lacing up

:08:17.:08:20.

The funding's part of a wider ?300 million investment

:08:21.:08:23.

to boost walking and cycling during the current parliament.

:08:24.:08:27.

We want to make cycling and walking the default choice. Part of that is

:08:28.:08:35.

investment in infrastructure and encouraging people to change their

:08:36.:08:39.

behaviour, and seeing how they can improve their lives.

:08:40.:08:42.

Nottingham and Derby's councils joined together for their bid,

:08:43.:08:44.

and have collectively been awarded ?3.5 million.

:08:45.:08:46.

Meanwhile, Leicester City and County has been given ?3.5 million alone.

:08:47.:08:52.

It is particularly important in cities where you have a serious

:08:53.:09:02.

problem of congestion and traffic. Very bad in Nottingham and Dolby.

:09:03.:09:06.

Getting on your bike is an important way of tackling that, as well as

:09:07.:09:11.

walking and electric vehicles. The owner of this bike shop says the

:09:12.:09:15.

amount of people wanting to commute by bike has rocketed in recent

:09:16.:09:19.

years. We are seeing a lot of cyclists who

:09:20.:09:23.

were perhaps fair weather cyclists. But now they have invested in coats

:09:24.:09:30.

and bikes and sucking all the year round.

:09:31.:09:31.

Elise is at a bicycle shop in Nottingham for us this evening.

:09:32.:09:34.

Elise, what is the reaction from cyclists to this extra investment?

:09:35.:09:42.

Cyclists must be happy about this extra investment?

:09:43.:09:51.

Yes, Matt Foster is the director of this firm. As a cyclist, what would

:09:52.:09:55.

you like the money to be invested in?

:09:56.:10:00.

Safe cycle highways to keep people cycling, encourage Children And

:10:01.:10:02.

Family Act to get out on their bikes.

:10:03.:10:07.

Is this amount enough, what difference can this amount of money

:10:08.:10:11.

make? Anything will help cycling in the

:10:12.:10:20.

area. It would be great this to be a start and keep running forward with

:10:21.:10:23.

this. Thank you. The Government says it is

:10:24.:10:29.

up to individual councils how they decide on how this money is spent

:10:30.:10:33.

but it could go towards safety training courses for cyclists and

:10:34.:10:35.

more secure storage for bikes. A barber from Derby who was arrested

:10:36.:10:42.

earlier this week has appeared in court charged

:10:43.:10:44.

with terror offences. The Counter Terrorism Unit says it

:10:45.:10:47.

stopped 30-year-old Mudassir Hussain They allege he was flying to Turkey

:10:48.:10:49.

to try to join Islamic State. Meanwhile, Derbyshire Police have

:10:50.:10:58.

deployed extra officers A popular caf in Alvaston Park

:10:59.:11:01.

in Derby is to close, following a city council

:11:02.:11:12.

meeting last night. There was a protest on Sunday

:11:13.:11:14.

at the Mad Hatters Tea Room, after the council said it wouldn't

:11:15.:11:17.

be renewing the lease. 3,000 people have signed

:11:18.:11:19.

a petition against the change. But last night, councillors rejected

:11:20.:11:21.

a motion, calling for the current With the NHS in the spotlight,

:11:22.:11:24.

one East Midlands MP has found Jon Ashworth took on the

:11:25.:11:33.

role of Shadow Health It's a high-profile role

:11:34.:11:40.

which thrusts him into the national It's also a job which gives

:11:41.:11:46.

him a chance to make helping the children

:11:47.:11:50.

of alcoholics a priority. He speaks from personal experience,

:11:51.:11:52.

as our political editor Jon Ashworth can see

:11:53.:11:54.

the constituency he has represented for over five years

:11:55.:12:06.

from his tenth-floor The hours are long,

:12:07.:12:08.

the demands many. My mum was a barmaid,

:12:09.:12:12.

my dad was a croupier I remember very clearly growing up

:12:13.:12:17.

the differences in society. And I always had a sense that

:12:18.:12:25.

things weren't fair, A lot of his childhood was coloured

:12:26.:12:27.

by living with an alcoholic father and dealing with the pressures

:12:28.:12:34.

of an illness which I would go home and open the fridge,

:12:35.:12:36.

and there was nothing there I'd have to go to the shops

:12:37.:12:42.

and get the food in. One memory of a football match

:12:43.:12:47.

from when he was eight has stuck. I remember the crowds,

:12:48.:12:50.

his workmates watching it, the crowds going, John Ashworth

:12:51.:12:56.

is in goal, throws him a can of Stella one way

:12:57.:12:59.

and he'll go that way. It was funny and jokey,

:13:00.:13:01.

you know how we have a laugh Sometimes I do wonder,

:13:02.:13:04.

rather than thinking it is something to joke about,

:13:05.:13:14.

maybe we should take these He now believes that can be changed

:13:15.:13:17.

for future generations. There are some estimate up

:13:18.:13:25.

to two million children in the country living

:13:26.:13:27.

with an alcoholic parent. And those children get no support,

:13:28.:13:32.

no help, there is no dedicated child phone numbers for them to ring

:13:33.:13:35.

or ChildLine number. I am hoping to make a few changes

:13:36.:13:38.

on things like that. If I can do that, maybe

:13:39.:13:41.

I have made a difference. All MPs gets flak for being part

:13:42.:13:45.

of the Westminster bubble. Jon Ashworth says their lives have

:13:46.:13:48.

to be more than just politics. And there'll be more

:13:49.:13:52.

to be alive after crawling for two hours across a dark,

isolated beach with Tim Robinson from Hilton says

:15:26.:15:27.

survival training helped save him when his holiday in Dorset this

:15:28.:15:34.

month took a dangerous turn. He was only rescued

:15:35.:15:38.

after he messaged SOS in Morse I had gone over the mudslide

:15:39.:15:40.

and round the headland was some rock pools and that is where

:15:41.:15:54.

I had my accident. Back in Derbyshire visiting mum

:15:55.:15:56.

after 11 days in hospital and an ordeal which he says

:15:57.:15:59.

changed his life. Tim Robinson had been alone

:16:00.:16:02.

searching for fossils while on a coastal break

:16:03.:16:04.

with his wife when he slipped I stepped from one large rock

:16:05.:16:07.

to another and the second large rock had a bit of slimy seaweed

:16:08.:16:18.

on and my foot slipped and I went the opposite way and I heard this

:16:19.:16:23.

crack and my leg had snapped. If I had stayed put under the cliffs

:16:24.:16:27.

with falling debris, some of them are car-sized

:16:28.:16:32.

when they shear off. If I had stayed at the water line

:16:33.:16:34.

I would have been submerged So I needed to move

:16:35.:16:37.

one way or the other. Totally isolated,

:16:38.:16:41.

it was then that Tim, a member of the Territorial Army

:16:42.:16:42.

for 26 years, says his He crawled for a mile and a half

:16:43.:16:45.

over rocks and undergrowth, the only other thing with him

:16:46.:16:51.

a tiny metal torch. I knew the Morse code letters -

:16:52.:16:58.

dot dot dot, dash dash Being a small, single AAA battery

:16:59.:17:01.

torch, I wasn't confident that could work over a mile and a quarter

:17:02.:17:08.

so what I decided to do was crawl for five minutes and signal again

:17:09.:17:12.

and crawl for five minutes and the third time I did my signal

:17:13.:17:14.

and I saw some lights flashing back. She raised the alarm and Tim

:17:15.:17:18.

was rushed to hospital Tim needed surgery and faces

:17:19.:17:22.

another operation. He hopes to eventually get back

:17:23.:17:29.

to the Territorial Army but in his words, he'll be

:17:30.:17:31.

a changed man. I've done two tours in Afghanistan

:17:32.:17:37.

and one in Iraq and I have been in jeopardy there but you realise

:17:38.:17:40.

sometimes it is when you least expect it, all of a sudden

:17:41.:17:43.

your life is at risk. If there was anybody who would

:17:44.:17:55.

survive that, it would be him. We have some sad news now.

:17:56.:17:57.

BBC Radio Derby Presenter Andy Potter has announced to listeners

:17:58.:17:59.

that he's got just months to live after being diagnosed

:18:00.:18:02.

Andy, who's 55, has contributed to many of the station's shows

:18:03.:18:05.

since 1999 and has been the afternoon presenter

:18:06.:18:07.

He announced the news on Ian Skye's Breakfast Show this

:18:08.:18:11.

morning where he also thanked listeners for their support.

:18:12.:18:20.

Thank you to the people forgetting in touch, thank you to all the

:18:21.:18:28.

people who have been producers, who have helped me all the time,

:18:29.:18:34.

forgiving me the opportunity, it be allowed on a Derby radio station. I

:18:35.:18:39.

said earlier on, I wanted to leave a mark and hopefully we have done a

:18:40.:18:44.

bit of that. Our thoughts are with you and your

:18:45.:18:46.

family. Nottingham Forest have made an

:18:47.:18:58.

approach to Burton Albion to speak to Nigel Clough for the vacant

:18:59.:19:02.

manager's job and he is considering it. The owner says he understands

:19:03.:19:10.

why some managers may not want to work with him.

:19:11.:19:12.

Fawaz Al Hasawi says he knows some managers don't

:19:13.:19:14.

want to work with him, but is in discussion

:19:15.:19:16.

Well, we are meeting someone just right now.

:19:17.:19:24.

By the way even the manager before is not my

:19:25.:19:30.

That was the owner, they wanted to buy the club, they brought

:19:31.:19:35.

In his first interview since the club's takeover

:19:36.:19:44.

collapse with an American consortium, Fawaz says he is now

:19:45.:19:46.

Unfortunately, we used to have somebody in the club who was doing

:19:47.:19:52.

it wrong, and he passed the wrong information.

:19:53.:19:54.

You can't blame the people underneath you, you own it.

:19:55.:20:06.

I never blame the employee, I always support them in the club.

:20:07.:20:09.

On the pitch, Forest have an interim manager,

:20:10.:20:11.

above the Championship relegation zone after a 2-0 defeat

:20:12.:20:15.

Fans have become increasingly angry and disillusioned with Al Hasawi

:20:16.:20:31.

because wages have been paid late, and there's been transfer embargo

:20:32.:20:33.

It is not just fans that are unhappy, the reputation of the club

:20:34.:20:39.

Other people in football don't want to deal with

:20:40.:20:42.

I agree with you that there are many things

:20:43.:20:50.

Unless they see in their eyes the change will come.

:20:51.:21:05.

There were reports you wanted to stabilise the club and sell it in

:21:06.:21:10.

summer. Everything in life has a price. The

:21:11.:21:16.

club, I would like to keep Nottingham and see Nottingham in the

:21:17.:21:19.

Premiership as the owner. It would be like a dream for me.

:21:20.:21:21.

And you can hear the full interview with Fawaz Al Hasawi on our BBC

:21:22.:21:25.

Now, the build-up to tomorrow night's big East Midlands FA Cup

:21:26.:21:29.

The flags are already out at Pride Park ahead

:21:30.:21:34.

of their fourth-round tie against Leicester City.

:21:35.:21:37.

Everyone at Derby's keen to test themselves against

:21:38.:21:39.

We are playing the Premier League champions, Leicester,

:21:40.:21:45.

for what they have achieved, they have come through

:21:46.:21:47.

They won the league against all the odds.

:21:48.:21:52.

From my point of view, one of the great sporting

:21:53.:21:55.

We are looking forward to taking them on.

:21:56.:22:02.

We'll be bringing fans, it will be a packed Pride Park Stadium.

:22:03.:22:05.

A great occasion, a real special occasion, I can't

:22:06.:22:07.

At Leicester City, manager Claudio Ranieri says he'll be taking

:22:08.:22:11.

He's promising to play his strongest side to get

:22:12.:22:14.

I put on the best team, the best team.

:22:15.:22:26.

we need to get confidence because we lost so many matches in

:22:27.:22:31.

And finally from me, could Carlton Cole be

:22:32.:22:38.

The former England, Chelsea and West Ham striker is a free agent

:22:39.:22:42.

Magpies manager Kevin Nolan, who played alongside him

:22:43.:22:45.

at West Ham, hopes to sign Cole when the clubs transfer

:22:46.:22:48.

But we do have more from Anne's favourite, Claudio Ranieri.

:22:49.:23:08.

Yes, the great man himself paid a surprise visit

:23:09.:23:12.

Fresh from his honorary degree, the Leicester City boss

:23:13.:23:15.

was the guest of honour at Forest Lodge Community Primary

:23:16.:23:18.

School in New Parks, and officially opened

:23:19.:23:19.

For Claudio, it was a chance to take a break from the stress of football

:23:20.:23:24.

management and for the children it was a day they'll never forget.

:23:25.:23:27.

It doesn't get much better than this for Forest Lodge Primary.

:23:28.:23:36.

A brand new school and a surprise visit from Leicester City

:23:37.:23:38.

He came to the school today to officially open the new building.

:23:39.:23:45.

I am very glad to be here with you today.

:23:46.:23:51.

I am sorry for just a few minutes because tomorrow we have a

:23:52.:23:57.

very important match and I have to go to study the next opponent.

:23:58.:24:01.

As well as unveiling the official plaque,

:24:02.:24:02.

he even found time to pose for some photos with the staff an pupils.

:24:03.:24:09.

To stand and have the plaque officially opened in the school

:24:10.:24:34.

Immensely proud, so excited for the future.

:24:35.:24:37.

On the field, it's not going too well for the Foxes at the moment.

:24:38.:24:40.

So what advice would these budding managers give to Claudio

:24:41.:24:42.

as he picks his team for tomorrow night's FA Cup match?

:24:43.:24:48.

Boys, what would you do with the team?

:24:49.:24:50.

You have picked a slightly different starting team.

:24:51.:25:09.

You can see what a difficult job it is for Claudio.

:25:10.:25:11.

It's hoped today's visit could inspire the next generation

:25:12.:25:14.

It's certainly a day these children will remember for some time yet.

:25:15.:25:22.

Lovely. I hope he is watching, there could be some good advice. But don't

:25:23.:25:28.

take anything from Dominic. Today was very cold, those teachers

:25:29.:25:41.

reaching a maximum of freezing but more like minus four Celsius. Plenty

:25:42.:25:51.

of cloud around. Tomorrow, we can expect plenty of cloud. It will be

:25:52.:25:56.

cold although those temperatures will recover on today. A view

:25:57.:26:00.

outbreaks of patchy rain into the evening. This weather front is

:26:01.:26:06.

making its way from the west producing rain. The wind direction

:26:07.:26:11.

will change to a westerly on Saturday. Not as cold. Some patchy

:26:12.:26:19.

cloud. A widespread frost again. Temperatures falling overnight down

:26:20.:26:27.

2-2 C. There could be some hill fog. A cold start tomorrow. Right by the

:26:28.:26:31.

first thing but the cloud will thicken from the south. Temperatures

:26:32.:26:37.

take their time to recover. A maximum of four Celsius. In the

:26:38.:26:45.

evening, patchy outbreaks of rain. Saturday, you see that rain clearing

:26:46.:26:50.

to the east. Behind it, bright intervals but also heavy showers and

:26:51.:26:57.

there could be a bit of thunder. Temperatures up to 7 degrees. Some

:26:58.:27:01.

uncertainty on Sunday. The potential for rain.

:27:02.:27:07.

Milder temperatures into mid week. Double figures by Monday.

:27:08.:27:12.

Excellent. Only ten. An exciting game tomorrow.

:27:13.:27:18.

5000 Leicester fans at Derby, still if you tickets left.

:27:19.:27:23.

If you want to go, better try now.

:27:24.:27:25.
