In the programme tonight: a remarkable turnaround

:00:00.:00:00.

as Addenbrooke's Hospital moves out of special measures.

:00:07.:00:14.

We saw a remarkable turnaround any culture and management within the

:00:15.:00:16.

hospital. As the government's plans become

:00:17.:00:17.

clearer, our big employers discuss From the East to the Far East -

:00:18.:00:20.

how Northamptonshire's Motorsport Valley is building hi-tech

:00:21.:00:24.

links with China. And at the wrong end

:00:25.:00:34.

of a giant killing. What next for Ipswich Town

:00:35.:00:36.

as they crash out of the FA Cup? It's been described

:00:37.:00:48.

as a "remarkable turnaround". 18 months ago, Addenbrooke's

:00:49.:00:52.

Hospital in Cambridge was suddenly placed in special measures,

:00:53.:00:55.

inspectors rating Today, the Care Quality Commission,

:00:56.:00:58.

after a new inspection, Back in September 2015,

:00:59.:01:03.

the hospital was criticised for poor management staff shortages

:01:04.:01:10.

and long delays for outpatients. An interim report eight months later

:01:11.:01:15.

showed some progress, with the hospital rated

:01:16.:01:18.

as 'requiring improvement'. Today, that rating

:01:19.:01:21.

was upgraded to "good". There was praise for reduced

:01:22.:01:24.

outpatient waiting times, less reliance on agency nurses,

:01:25.:01:27.

and improvements within management, but warnings also

:01:28.:01:31.

to improve childrens' services and cut the number of

:01:32.:01:35.

cancelled operations. 18 months ago, the diagnosis

:01:36.:01:37.

of Addenbrooke's was poor. Patients, we were told,

:01:38.:01:44.

were being put at risk by precariously low numbers of staff

:01:45.:01:46.

and inspectors even went as far as saying bosses had

:01:47.:01:50.

lost their grip on the basics. Being placed in special measures

:01:51.:01:54.

was, say staff, a wake-up call. A hospital once described by

:01:55.:02:01.

regulators as inadequate is now in Today there is a relief

:02:02.:02:05.

and a recognition of the toll the past year has taken

:02:06.:02:09.

on both staff and patients. Addenbrooke's has a very

:02:10.:02:14.

special place in We worked hard to talk

:02:15.:02:16.

to everybody, patients, carers, other groups at the hospital

:02:17.:02:24.

to reassure them. With staffing levels

:02:25.:02:28.

on the rise, the care provided, Earlier criticism over finances

:02:29.:02:30.

and staffing led to the abrupt departure of this man,

:02:31.:02:37.

Chief Executive Keith McNeill. But a change in management brought

:02:38.:02:41.

about a change in fortunes. We saw a remarkable turnaround

:02:42.:02:45.

in the culture and management I think the problem was really

:02:46.:02:49.

that they had forgotten that they were a District General

:02:50.:02:54.

Hospital, serving people Addenbrooke's was and remains

:02:55.:02:58.

one of the world's most renowned hospitals, so when it fell

:02:59.:03:02.

from grace back in 2015, it took Not least the 500,000

:03:03.:03:07.

patients it sees every year. Huge improvements had been made,

:03:08.:03:16.

but it's Achilles heel remains its chronic shortage of beds and how it

:03:17.:03:21.

responds to rising patient numbers. There is only so much

:03:22.:03:24.

that the hospital can do. If it can identify where blockages

:03:25.:03:26.

are and try and get patients discharged

:03:27.:03:29.

as safely and as soon as possible, there is nothing

:03:30.:03:30.

much more that they can do. They cannot control the amount

:03:31.:03:33.

of patients coming in the And it is patients like 82-year-old

:03:34.:03:35.

Keith that depend on It has been a month since

:03:36.:03:39.

he was admitted with an aneurysm. Everything has been

:03:40.:03:44.

more than satisfactory. So how did they turn things

:03:45.:03:57.

around at Addenbrooke's? Well, a new Chief Executive joined

:03:58.:04:11.

the hospital just after that I've been speaking to Roland Sinker,

:04:12.:04:14.

and began by asking what the 'good' The outcome of today's's

:04:15.:04:20.

report is a huge boost to morale in the organisation because

:04:21.:04:28.

it shows that when we put our shoulder to the wheel,

:04:29.:04:31.

we can deliver really tremendous You can see exactly

:04:32.:04:34.

the same in terms of our financial performance

:04:35.:04:39.

which is also improving in a very The areas that I have been

:04:40.:04:41.

particularly focused on have been listening to our patients,

:04:42.:04:47.

listening to our staff, improving the relationships between the board

:04:48.:04:52.

and our front-line provision of care, taking very hard

:04:53.:04:56.

about governance, how we run the hospital,

:04:57.:04:58.

and thinking about where the Although all services

:04:59.:05:01.

are now rated as good, there are still some

:05:02.:05:04.

concerns about the environment for children

:05:05.:05:08.

in the emergency department,

:05:09.:05:09.

ensuring children safety. Specifically in relation

:05:10.:05:12.

to children, there are two points. The first relates to the amount

:05:13.:05:17.

of physical capacity, bays, beds, trolleys that we have

:05:18.:05:21.

in the emergency department, so we can give really timely care

:05:22.:05:25.

to children who come into the emergency department,

:05:26.:05:28.

having had a nasty fall, having some sort of breathing problems,

:05:29.:05:31.

may be very acute asthma. The second issue relates

:05:32.:05:35.

to the number of beds that Most importantly,

:05:36.:05:38.

how many beds we have across the health and care economy,

:05:39.:05:42.

across the county, so that's children who do need to be admitted

:05:43.:05:45.

into hospital have got timely access to a bed if that's

:05:46.:05:49.

is what is needed. Looking at maternity services,

:05:50.:05:52.

a lot of improvement, but still the report says quite a lot

:05:53.:05:56.

of divergences and risk scenarios. In terms of maternity, we're working

:05:57.:06:00.

very closely with our partner hospitals across the region, to work

:06:01.:06:06.

out exactly how much capacity we need, how many beds,

:06:07.:06:10.

how many midwives, to provide the care to mums who are coming

:06:11.:06:14.

into hospital The headline is that

:06:15.:06:16.

hospital is full, How much of that is within your

:06:17.:06:21.

capacity to change? How much is down to

:06:22.:06:30.

councils and social care? We're working very closely with our

:06:31.:06:35.

colleagues in general practice, community services and social care,

:06:36.:06:39.

and the particular focus is on emergency pathway through

:06:40.:06:43.

the hospital, so this is finding ways to avoid people becoming

:06:44.:06:46.

unwell in the first place, so our colleagues in mental health

:06:47.:06:50.

providers who provide community services, they do

:06:51.:06:54.

very good work reaching Within the hospital,

:06:55.:06:57.

making sure we are bringing all our resources to bear to bring the best

:06:58.:07:02.

possible care for patients, sold consultants in respiratory,

:07:03.:07:06.

that anything is needed as soon We are particularly working

:07:07.:07:10.

with colleagues in social care and commenity services outside

:07:11.:07:21.

the hospital so that when a hot patient is ready to leave,

:07:22.:07:24.

we are able to get them back into their own setting

:07:25.:07:27.

as fast as possible. Throughout this whole process,

:07:28.:07:29.

the staff here have been universally What do you want to

:07:30.:07:32.

say to them today? the past year, a huge thank

:07:33.:07:35.

you to everybody for the very hard Our continued work on what

:07:36.:07:38.

we call organisational development, transformational,

:07:39.:07:48.

continuous improvement, which is really about putting doctors,

:07:49.:07:52.

managers and nurses in command of their services and enabling

:07:53.:07:55.

them to be in control. Yesterday, Theresa May

:07:56.:08:08.

outlined her approach It's a process which could

:08:09.:08:13.

have a big impact on jobs and growth In a moment, the view

:08:14.:08:19.

from Westminster, but first our political reporter Tom Barton has

:08:20.:08:23.

been gauging the response were more than six months after

:08:24.:08:37.

Britain voted for Brexit, the Prime Minister gave us a clear picture of

:08:38.:08:44.

what the likely mean. I propose that it cannot mean membership of the

:08:45.:08:49.

single market. In a room packed with business leaders, those words where

:08:50.:08:54.

one of the hot topics of conversation. I thought the speech

:08:55.:09:01.

was good, it was needed. We been waiting for it. Vague and

:09:02.:09:07.

disappointing. Not unexpected. I thought she was very good. I thought

:09:08.:09:11.

the speech was articulate and well informed. A very coherent speech.

:09:12.:09:16.

Cambridge is one of the few part of our region to have voted against

:09:17.:09:20.

Brexit. Almost three out of every four people here said they wanted to

:09:21.:09:26.

remain in the European Union. Part of the reason is that the science

:09:27.:09:31.

and technology industries which are so important in this economy lie

:09:32.:09:36.

heavily on highly skilled workers coming here from elsewhere in the

:09:37.:09:41.

EU. I'm not sure we learned anything yesterday. For Andrew Lansley,

:09:42.:09:47.

questions still remain for those Cambridge businesses. The speech

:09:48.:09:53.

didn't tell is all we need to know in order to see if it's good to be a

:09:54.:09:56.

success. What is this new immigration system? Is it going to

:09:57.:10:02.

be just the old one? With the same difficulties tried to bring people

:10:03.:10:04.

from abroad big Spears at the moment? For those who have worked

:10:05.:10:11.

with some of Cambridge byes biggest companies there was a sense that the

:10:12.:10:14.

Prime Minister has been listening. People here are used to

:10:15.:10:19.

collaborating right across Europe and across the world in developing

:10:20.:10:25.

new science. I hope the message that she got across, which I think she

:10:26.:10:32.

did, is that we aren't turning our backs on you, we are not walking

:10:33.:10:38.

away. As the Prime Minister pussy final preparations in place,

:10:39.:10:42.

businesses in Cambridge and around the region but be watching closely

:10:43.:10:44.

to see what it means for them. Well, while Cambridge absorbed

:10:45.:10:47.

Theresa May's speech at breakfast, some of our bigger employers

:10:48.:10:49.

were making a direct appeal They want guarantees

:10:50.:10:52.

they'll still be able to employ migrant workers

:10:53.:10:56.

from the European Union They told MPs that, without that,

:10:57.:10:58.

the farms and care homes in the east Whether it is harvesting crops,

:10:59.:11:17.

picking fruit are working in our care homes, the region has always

:11:18.:11:21.

been reliant on overseas workers. This is why employers are worried.

:11:22.:11:27.

Today, some of them laid out the case. The director of a company from

:11:28.:11:33.

Ely which employs 2500 seasonal workers across the fence. We would

:11:34.:11:39.

not be able to operate without access to the European Union. The

:11:40.:11:43.

owner of the chain of fruit farms in Southwark. No restrictions on

:11:44.:11:50.

employing people to pick up crops have meant that we have grown 500%.

:11:51.:11:58.

The boss of a Cambridge care firm. Eastern European markets... We have

:11:59.:12:04.

struggled in terms of recruitment. Their message to MPs is that the

:12:05.:12:08.

future supply of migrant labour is at risk because of Brexit. Every

:12:09.:12:12.

movement is replaced by visas are complicated paperwork, it will put

:12:13.:12:16.

up costs and could discourage staff. There are signs that EU workers no

:12:17.:12:20.

longer want to work here. Applications to work for this

:12:21.:12:28.

company have halved this year. Baulk they don't feel welcome. Most people

:12:29.:12:33.

who have set up homes here send money back, but many of them are

:12:34.:12:39.

worried about the future for their family are so if there are other

:12:40.:12:43.

opportunities to go elsewhere where it is more welcoming than they are

:12:44.:12:48.

now looking at that. There was still be people coming from the European

:12:49.:12:53.

Union when we leave the EU. The Prime Minister spoke again today

:12:54.:12:57.

about the importance of migrant labour poster Brexit. She also was

:12:58.:13:00.

the guarantee the right of the EU migrants living here. These are all

:13:01.:13:04.

things which need to be negotiated. Now, there is uncertainty and the

:13:05.:13:11.

message from the regions employers is to please and that uncertainty as

:13:12.:13:13.

soon as possible. Unemployment in the UK

:13:14.:13:15.

has continued to fall, but this region seems to be missing

:13:16.:13:18.

out on the jobs boom. Figures out today show the East

:13:19.:13:21.

was one of only two English regions to register an increase

:13:22.:13:24.

in the last quarter. More now from our business

:13:25.:13:28.

correspondent Richard Bond. Susie until recently the region's

:13:29.:13:33.

jobs market appeared As the graph shows the unemployment

:13:34.:13:35.

total went into a steady decline after reaching 213,000

:13:36.:13:41.

five years ago. But having touched 112,000

:13:42.:13:45.

in the spring of last year Today's figures showed it

:13:46.:13:49.

at 145,000, a jump of 22,000 A question I put to the woman

:13:50.:13:56.

in charge of job centres across Cambridgeshire,

:13:57.:14:03.

Suffolk and Norfolk. We have seen no increase in job

:14:04.:14:17.

losses across east Anglia, so it is a bit of a mystery. One of the

:14:18.:14:22.

influences may be that universal credit has been rolled out in Great

:14:23.:14:27.

Yarmouth and it is part of a national pilot. This is where our

:14:28.:14:30.

customers, our job-seekers would remain with us whilst they are

:14:31.:14:35.

employed, so that we are helping them to get long-term sustainable

:14:36.:14:41.

employment or perhaps a pay increase, ditched makes them free of

:14:42.:14:46.

benefit. Those customers would be included in the unemployment figures

:14:47.:14:57.

that you are quoting. This is. As pointed out a likely influence on

:14:58.:15:03.

the numbers. We seen a state pension age increased from 60 to 65 and a

:15:04.:15:07.

basis in the sex, this is the effect of women staying in the labour

:15:08.:15:12.

market and not retiring early. It is an effect on women looking for work

:15:13.:15:15.

when our older and increasing the number of work hours to our

:15:16.:15:21.

unemployed. We're told we should be too much into these figures as it

:15:22.:15:24.

will become clear over the next few months with these righties asked to

:15:25.:15:25.

Spain. Andrew Sinclair is

:15:26.:15:26.

at Westminster now. Andrew, plenty for employers

:15:27.:15:28.

to think about today. The right in unemployment is

:15:29.:15:38.

something which they are quizzically concerned about but not losing sleep

:15:39.:15:42.

over. The big concern and the big thing they are talking about is

:15:43.:15:47.

Brexit. In one word that sums it up is uncertainty. How long I be going

:15:48.:15:54.

to have to live with is uncertainty? The answer is sometime, possibly a

:15:55.:16:00.

couple of years. People in the Government say they understand the

:16:01.:16:05.

need to give clarity, and they had their way we'd have migrant workers

:16:06.:16:09.

after Brexit, David guarantee the rights of EU migrants were living

:16:10.:16:16.

here. This is a negotiation with 27 other countries plus the European

:16:17.:16:20.

Commission, this will take time. We don't know what they will ask for in

:16:21.:16:24.

return. Any company which has anything to do with the European

:16:25.:16:28.

Union is going to have to learn to cope with this uncertainty and be

:16:29.:16:32.

patient for some time to come. How can we reduce our reliance on

:16:33.:16:36.

migrant workers? ... That is something which the select committee

:16:37.:16:43.

which was talking to employers was asked today. Why not employ more

:16:44.:16:47.

British ones? The answer is to do with low wages to do with the care

:16:48.:16:54.

sector and the farming sector where profits are lowest wages are low.

:16:55.:16:59.

One big reason given today is that in our region, we do have a very low

:17:00.:17:04.

unemployment rate and all the employers have said it is hard

:17:05.:17:08.

finding English people who are prepared to take jobs in the care

:17:09.:17:14.

sector and in the farming sector. We were told that some companies run a

:17:15.:17:20.

scheme with employment agencies to recruit workers and they got 12

:17:21.:17:24.

people, just employing too. Eventually the local Jobcentre said

:17:25.:17:27.

can you stop wasting their time running schemes like this.

:17:28.:17:30.

The Chief Constable of Cambridgeshire Police

:17:31.:17:32.

says his force has received over 50 complaints alleging child sexual

:17:33.:17:35.

abuse linked to football clubs dating back to the 1980s.

:17:36.:17:39.

Alec Wood says the complaints are linked to a number

:17:40.:17:41.

of individuals at both professional and lower level clubs in the county.

:17:42.:17:49.

We've had in excess of 50 people reporting allegations to us. Some of

:17:50.:18:00.

that is within the county,, summer is outside the county. We are

:18:01.:18:03.

working closely with the formal association and the NSP CC by some

:18:04.:18:08.

reports have come through them. We tackling all of those allegations

:18:09.:18:14.

any serious way. We're listening to the people who are talking to us and

:18:15.:18:18.

we are investigating. There will be offenders who will eventually be put

:18:19.:18:20.

to justice. The Peterborough-based travel

:18:21.:18:22.

company Thomas Cook is bringing thousands of British holiday-makers

:18:23.:18:23.

home from Gambia because of a worsening

:18:24.:18:25.

political crisis there. The Foreign Office is advising

:18:26.:18:27.

people to avoid all but essential Thomas Cook said it was implementing

contingency plans to bring home its UK customers over

After a freezing night for most of the region last night, will you

:18:56.:19:07.

need your scraper in the morning? And injury time heartbreak

:19:08.:19:10.

for Ipswich as they crash We've heard a lot today about our

:19:11.:19:15.

relationships with Europe, but in Northamptonshire they're working

:19:16.:19:24.

hard to develop business with China, and it's in a field

:19:25.:19:26.

in which the county is world famous. Motorsport employs twenty one

:19:27.:19:30.

thousand people there, and is worth two billion lbs

:19:31.:19:33.

to the local economy. They are one of a growing number of

:19:34.:19:54.

businesses now located in Northamptonshire's motorsport

:19:55.:19:57.

Valley. There's an atmosphere in the industry here that makes it easier

:19:58.:20:01.

for customers to visit. We find many customers who come to visit has also

:20:02.:20:06.

visit other people on the park and surrounding area. Silverstone is the

:20:07.:20:11.

obvious heart of motorsport Valley. Across the Vantage, there are 1000

:20:12.:20:15.

businesses directly associated with the industry. An hour from here,

:20:16.:20:22.

there are a further 3000. It is no wonder that this whole area is now

:20:23.:20:27.

attracting international interest. It is this interest which has

:20:28.:20:31.

prompted this economic lecturer at the University of the Hampton to be

:20:32.:20:36.

asked by his home province in China do act as a motorsport trade

:20:37.:20:42.

ambassador. I have no doubt that we will bring in enormous interest from

:20:43.:20:46.

the Chinese investors and the Government as well. They are looking

:20:47.:20:52.

for to invest in the UK and as a result of them doing that, I have no

:20:53.:20:59.

doubt that that will bring in high and engineering jobs. A conference

:21:00.:21:05.

support motorsport is already being organised. This development is a

:21:06.:21:10.

welcome one. Britain has always been an outgoing nation that has done

:21:11.:21:14.

international trade, we should promote that and do as much as

:21:15.:21:18.

possible. Any new Chinese partnership is a way off, but that

:21:19.:21:22.

the world's largest economy is taking an age of seen by many as

:21:23.:21:26.

Brexit is hugely encouraging. The managing director

detained 59 places. The glory of the FA Cup for the link and city, I in

:21:51.:21:56.

for Ipswich town. The manner of the defeat is brutal and as clinical as

:21:57.:22:06.

it gets. Lincoln city I threw? They have knocked out... ! Baguette

:22:07.:22:12.

McCarthy 's face. He has been vilified before but this is a new

:22:13.:22:16.

ball game. Live on national television. It's legend Terry

:22:17.:22:21.

Butcher, scathing. They should be happy and .in the way they played

:22:22.:22:24.

over these two games. Insipid. I'm embarrassed. If I could pick over

:22:25.:22:31.

the carcass, that was just an utter disgrace. FA guys are like that,

:22:32.:22:38.

that's why he you are here. You want to see these upsets use got one

:22:39.:22:42.

tonight. It's great for TV but not great for the club. What next for

:22:43.:22:47.

its whetstone? This morning towers were quick to vent their anger on

:22:48.:22:52.

BBC radio Suffolk. The embarrassment, I don't think that

:22:53.:22:59.

covers it. I most certainly won't be renewing my season ticket. I thought

:23:00.:23:02.

he was doing his best with the squad available. The line-up last night

:23:03.:23:09.

was embarrassing. That will be getting sacked in the morning.

:23:10.:23:14.

Whether that is the case, I can't do anything about that. You're

:23:15.:23:20.

determined to fight on? Of course. I don't like serving that kind of

:23:21.:23:24.

football for the fans, that is to add my four years plus. Enforce the

:23:25.:23:31.

that's just it at the moment. We'll see what happens. Managed DirectX

:23:32.:23:36.

e-mail to the BBC that no one took any pleasure from the performance,

:23:37.:23:40.

but urged fans to get the hang McCarthy and the team. How they

:23:41.:23:42.

respond this weekend in the league will be crucial.

:23:43.:23:55.

A dry day after day. When a way to the north and west has brought a lot

:23:56.:24:05.

of clothes, particularly to Cambridge and parts of

:24:06.:24:07.

Northamptonshire the best of the sunshine today will be down in

:24:08.:24:11.

Essex, quite if you pictures sent in by the weather watchers of the

:24:12.:24:16.

sunrise this morning. We also had a picture of a... Through this layer

:24:17.:24:24.

cloud, formed a little bit of ice which help the cloud disappear in

:24:25.:24:28.

the shape of a whole. For this evening and tonight, a mixture

:24:29.:24:31.

between that cloud in the north and west and clear spells farther south

:24:32.:24:35.

and east. Etihad in the south east where we see the heat releasing

:24:36.:24:42.

ending atmosphere, nothing to N. The cloud will trap the heat N, so for

:24:43.:24:47.

Celsius for places like Peterborough, -4-mac for places like

:24:48.:24:54.

Essex. A sharp frost in south and eastern parts. Tomorrow, similar day

:24:55.:24:59.

to day, cloudy skies in the north-west, brightness farther south

:25:00.:25:03.

and east. A little bit of mist and drizzle across the fence and

:25:04.:25:06.

northern parts of Cambridge. High-temperature is around four five

:25:07.:25:12.

Celsius. Tomorrow, not a lot to change. Into Friday morning, some

:25:13.:25:18.

mist and fog in northern and western areas. Best of any clear spells

:25:19.:25:23.

farther south, that cloud generally drifting further south and east as

:25:24.:25:27.

we go through into Friday morning. Cloudy enter the night. That'll mean

:25:28.:25:37.

tempered is not as close, but -1, -2-mac, you can see this area high

:25:38.:25:41.

pressure is still with us at the end of week. That will bring in largely

:25:42.:25:45.

dry conditions but the remnants of that brand will run south and will

:25:46.:25:52.

see a lot of cloud and further south, it will look like a murky day

:25:53.:25:56.

across northern parts of the region and cloudy than the last few days in

:25:57.:26:01.

the south. Temperatures will be around six Celsius, if you spot near

:26:02.:26:08.

the coast near seven Celsius. Not much to say about the weekend other

:26:09.:26:12.

than rather cloudy sky, the better the sunshine probably around...

:26:13.:26:18.

Milder on Friday night then some very sharp frost in the early part

:26:19.:26:19.

of next week. That is the news and weather from

:26:20.:26:21.

Look can at least. Goodbye. Hello. I hope you're well.

:26:22.:26:55.

I really do. Because if you're not, then chances

:26:56.:26:58.

are the NHS won't be able to
