And now the news for the East Midlands, I'm Sarah Teale.

:00:11.:00:13.

Inspectors have found that services at all of Leicester's three

:00:14.:00:17.

The health watchdog, the Care Quality Commission visited

:00:18.:00:22.

the sites last year and found that safety, effectiveness and leadership

:00:23.:00:27.

The ratings haven't risen since the last inspection.

:00:28.:00:32.

The news that University hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust requires

:00:33.:00:39.

The previous inspection in April 2014 reached the

:00:40.:00:45.

I'm actually fairly pleased with some aspects of the

:00:46.:00:51.

report, I think it is very fair and accurate.

:00:52.:00:53.

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

:00:54.:00:56.

caring across the board across the three sites.

:00:57.:00:58.

Your review is still the same as in April 2014?

:00:59.:01:00.

Yes, it is, but the chief inspector goes out

:01:01.:01:02.

of his way in this statement to say that although we are in the same

:01:03.:01:06.

The Care Quality Commission commission team inspected it core

:01:07.:01:25.

services across three hospitals, LRI the Glenfield and the Journal put up

:01:26.:01:33.

they are rated as good. The effectiveness of the congenital

:01:34.:01:34.

heart services rated as outstanding. It can

:01:35.:01:48.

be frustrating but this is an extremely large organisation

:01:49.:01:49.

and 14,000 people work here. It is something of an

:01:50.:01:52.

oil tanker with very complex patients and ever-increasing

:01:53.:01:54.

numbers of patients coming to us so it is not the stuff

:01:55.:01:57.

of overnight miracles. It is the stuff of steady effort

:01:58.:02:01.

and commitment which I think The CQC report says that

:02:02.:02:04.

although the trust is at the same level it was in 2014,

:02:05.:02:09.

improvements have been made and staff have been rated as caring

:02:10.:02:14.

beauty is that the pharmacist can spend more time than the GP might

across a dark, isolated beach He'd slipped while walking

:06:18.:06:19.

on holiday in Dorset, and says his army survival training

:06:20.:06:25.

helped save him. He was only rescued

:06:26.:06:29.

after he messaged SOS I have gone over the mudslide

:06:30.:06:34.

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

:06:35.:06:41.

I had my accident. Back in Derbyshire visiting mum

:06:42.:06:43.

after 11 days in hospital and an ordeal which he says

:06:44.:06:46.

changed his life. Tim Robinson had been alone

:06:47.:06:49.

searching for fossils while on a coastal break

:06:50.:06:52.

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

:06:53.:06:54.

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

:06:55.:07:02.

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

:07:03.:07:06.

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

:07:07.:07:09.

with falling debris, some of them are car-sized

:07:10.:07:11.

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

:07:12.:07:14.

I would have been submerged So I needed to move

:07:15.:07:17.

one way or the other. Totally isolated,

:07:18.:07:20.

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

:07:21.:07:22.

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

:07:23.:07:24.

over rocks and undergrowth, the only other thing with him

:07:25.:07:28.

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

:07:29.:07:32.

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

:07:33.:07:35.

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

:07:36.:07:43.

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

:07:44.:07:47.

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

:07:48.:07:50.

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

:07:51.:07:53.

was rushed to hospital Tim needed surgery and faces

:07:54.:07:57.

another operation. He hopes to eventually get back

:07:58.:08:00.

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

:08:01.:08:02.

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