described as his 'pioneering' He joined Norwich City

Hospital has 526 beds were delivered there last year


and more than eighty-four thousand Stuart Ratcliffe has


been to the hospital 2pm on a Friday afternoon, what is a


situation like today? Three empty beds which will be filled shortly,


an additional 20 or so definite discharges and a further ten


potentials. I have 50 patients in ANA, ten of which definitely need


beds. With pressures building, it is the obvious first port of call.


Still on red. We flipping a bay to create capacity for the male


patients. She manages 526 beds in this hospital and it is a constant


juggling act. A new ward with 20 beds is due to open next month. It


is part of a multi-million rebuild but with Milton Keynes population


booming, will it be enough? We believe the building programmes we


have here, the significant investments we are making will allow


us to cope with demand. As it stands, do you think the NHS model


is sustainable in the future? I absolutely believe it is. The values


that drive the NHS, the staff that work here, the level of care, the


quality of care is still without question one of the best if not the


best in the world. The chief executive also admits the winter


pressures means this hospital and the wider NHS are coping but only

but cloud, too. Further outbreaks of light and patchy rain. Not as cold


as last night, temperatures no lower than two or three Celsius. Tomorrow,


we start cloudy, further outbreaks of rain at times but not as cold as


the last couple of days. Temperatures up to seven or 8


degrees. We may see the cloud break before the day is done in parts to


allow late sunshine and brightness but the most diverse it would be a


cloudy day from start to finish. In a moment, Helen with the national


forecast. Sunday, another cloudy day, uncertainty as to how far north


the rain will spread, Monday is try with drizzle and more rain on


Tuesday. Good evening. Not many would argue


that January hasn't been dry, but today, many of us had our first


significant rain for some time, because the transition is on from


cold, Continental dry air to milder Atlantic air, but the transition is


a slow one. So we have had ice today, and freezing fog, in northern


England. We had a little sunshine as well in Norfolk, but we still have


the cold air around and about in the north. All this rain you can see,


which is giving is a wet day in some areas, 10-15 millimetres of rain has


fallen, as it comes north there could be some winter it issues. Snow


already falling over Scotland, possibly over northern England,


possibly some sleet over lower areas and fog. Not particularly nice, and


some icy conditions to contend with late in the night across Northern
