BBC weather website. That is it all from the BBC's News at Six. We can

:00:00.:00:00.

join the BBC Good evening and welcome to BBC Look

:00:00.:00:07.

North. The headlines tonight. Claims that doctors with poor

:00:08.:00:12.

English are putting lives in danger. NHS temps. The figures that show

:00:13.:00:15.

Lincolnshire A are struggling to recruit permanent staff. This is

:00:16.:00:23.

something which has evolved over the years. We are trying everything we

:00:24.:00:27.

can to recruit people. "Misinterpreted" ` Tigers boss Steve

:00:28.:00:30.

Bruce weighs in on the owner's comments that some fans "can die as

:00:31.:00:39.

soon as they want". This family would like their street if they

:00:40.:00:44.

could. This could be the most decorated house. There is a warning

:00:45.:00:59.

severe gales tomorrow. There's a warning tonight that

:01:00.:01:02.

patients lives are being put at risk because doctors don't have a proper

:01:03.:01:06.

command of the English language. One Doctor Who works at one of our local

:01:07.:01:10.

hospitals says the NHS is employing staff from EU countries and not

:01:11.:01:15.

testing their English. He's told Look North that many are failing to

:01:16.:01:20.

communicate effectively. The General Medical Council says current law

:01:21.:01:23.

means they can't test English language skills of European doctors,

:01:24.:01:27.

but they plan to change that. Leanne Brown reports.

:01:28.:01:31.

Winter is one of the busiest times of the year for the NHS, and it's

:01:32.:01:36.

been no secret that many of our hospital are struggling to recruit

:01:37.:01:39.

the staff they need, but one Doctor Who we spoke to said employing staff

:01:40.:01:43.

from the EU isn't helping as many of them can't speak good enough

:01:44.:01:49.

English. He's asked us to disguise his identity.

:01:50.:01:54.

When the trust realises there can be a bit of concern so they're taken

:01:55.:01:58.

off a few shifts and those shifts are handed back to doctors who can

:01:59.:02:02.

effectively communicate. That in turn is giving enormous pressure on

:02:03.:02:05.

existing staff. There's other times when you're called in from your own

:02:06.:02:09.

regular duty, can you please come and attend to one of your colleagues

:02:10.:02:12.

because a patient is not happy and he's feeling quite angry because the

:02:13.:02:16.

doctor is not able to understand what he's trying to tell him. These

:02:17.:02:19.

things are happening on a daily basis now.

:02:20.:02:22.

Do you think lives will be put at risk?

:02:23.:02:30.

Definitely. If you are not communicating well, patients' lives

:02:31.:02:34.

are at risk. One man we spoke to said the

:02:35.:02:37.

language barrier was a major issue when his mum had a stroke at home.

:02:38.:02:46.

After he had examined me mother, he turned around and I asked him,

:02:47.:02:49.

"Well, what's happening? Really, she needs to be in hospital". But

:02:50.:02:56.

patients outside Hull Royal Infirmary seemed very happy with the

:02:57.:03:02.

level of English spoken there. We have just seen a specialist now for

:03:03.:03:06.

my wife. She's a European lady, no problems at all. We could understand

:03:07.:03:12.

them perfectly. They are all all right. Everyone talked all right so,

:03:13.:03:16.

yeah. The general medical council has told

:03:17.:03:19.

us that they can check the English skills of doctors who qualify

:03:20.:03:22.

outside Europe. However, current UK law stops the GMC from checking the

:03:23.:03:25.

English language skills of European doctors, which the regulator is

:03:26.:03:28.

working with the Department of Health to change. A consultation is

:03:29.:03:31.

currently under way and new rules should come in next year. We've seen

:03:32.:03:37.

examples, there was a German doctor, I believe, in the past where

:03:38.:03:41.

somebody actually died as a result of poor treatment from a Doctor Who

:03:42.:03:44.

couldn't speak English properly. It's been completely unacceptable

:03:45.:03:47.

and unfortunately that's been as a result of EU rules. You know, it

:03:48.:03:50.

isn't acceptable, it has to stop and these new rules will actually

:03:51.:03:53.

protect patients better because we will be able to see proper English

:03:54.:03:56.

language testing for medical staff coming from elsewhere in Europe. But

:03:57.:04:02.

the GMC have said they would not carry out checks on the thousands of

:04:03.:04:09.

doctors already here. Things will definitely get worse from next year

:04:10.:04:12.

when more people are coming, especially from Romania and

:04:13.:04:15.

Bulgaria. They will be coming. The sooner this law gets implemented,

:04:16.:04:18.

the better it is going to be for everyone. In the meantime, our local

:04:19.:04:25.

NHS trusts have all said they are undertaking extra English tests as

:04:26.:04:31.

part of their recruitment process. Dr Richard Vautrey is from the

:04:32.:04:34.

British Medical Association. I asked him how much patients are at risk

:04:35.:04:37.

because doctors don't have a command of the English language. I think it

:04:38.:04:44.

is a concern if they can't understand them. It is important

:04:45.:04:49.

that anyone who employs a doctor in the UK ensures that Doctor is

:04:50.:04:52.

competent and they have the necessary skills to be able to

:04:53.:04:57.

practice medicine safely. How do these people get through it in the

:04:58.:05:01.

first place? The doctor in that film says lives are being put at risk.

:05:02.:05:08.

All doctors who come from overseas have to pass stringent language

:05:09.:05:11.

tests before they are able to practice within England. Doctors

:05:12.:05:14.

which have qualified within the united Kingdom are able to work

:05:15.:05:20.

anywhere in the EU. This is one the challenges which is based web

:05:21.:05:24.

migration of medics across the European continent. The doctor is

:05:25.:05:31.

worried the situation will get worse when Bulgarian and remaining doctors

:05:32.:05:38.

are allowed to wear gear from next month white. Busi have a good grasp

:05:39.:05:47.

of English scholar and I think the General medical Council work with

:05:48.:05:49.

the government to change the medical act, as they do have great

:05:50.:05:54.

astringency over the ability of ensuring doctors do have the

:05:55.:06:00.

necessary command of English. How much is this a reflection of aren't

:06:01.:06:06.

growing our own doctors here? We are simply too reliant on doctors from

:06:07.:06:10.

overseas, whether that be from Europe or from further afield. We

:06:11.:06:15.

really do need to invest more in training and your own doctors from

:06:16.:06:19.

the UK and then this issue will not be a problem. How much pressure

:06:20.:06:25.

deliberate on doctors who can English? All doctors are working

:06:26.:06:31.

incredibly hard, whether they be in general practice or A There is

:06:32.:06:36.

huge pressure on their time and skills. I think we do need to find

:06:37.:06:41.

ways to ensure that everybody who is employed to work in a particular

:06:42.:06:45.

situation is able to parallel for weight and ensure the services to

:06:46.:06:51.

patients is not compromised. Let us know what you think about

:06:52.:06:54.

this story. What's been your experience? Has this been an issue

:06:55.:06:58.

when you've had dealings with the health service?

:06:59.:07:10.

T's also been revealed that hospitals across Lincolnshire can't

:07:11.:07:14.

recruit enough permanant doctors to their A departments. Three

:07:15.:07:17.

quarters of consultant posts in Lincoln, Boston and Grantham are

:07:18.:07:21.

filled by temporary staff. 60% in Grimsby and Scunthorpe do not have

:07:22.:07:26.

permanent positions. Now, one hospital trust is trying to tempt

:07:27.:07:29.

doctors to the area using a video on its website. More from out health

:07:30.:07:35.

correspondent Vicky Johnson: Our accident and emergency departments

:07:36.:07:38.

have never been so busy. And recruiting experienced

:07:39.:07:41.

consultants has never been so hard, especially at hospitals right across

:07:42.:07:44.

the Lincolnshire area There are ten consultants posts in emergency

:07:45.:07:46.

medicine across the Northern Lincolnshire Trust's two main sites

:07:47.:07:56.

at Grimsby and Scunthorpe. Some posts have to be built by locums on

:07:57.:08:05.

a long`term basis. There are ten consultants across the Lincolnshire

:08:06.:08:08.

trust in Grimsby and Scunthorpe. Six of them are filled by locums. The

:08:09.:08:12.

situation is even worse at the United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust,

:08:13.:08:14.

where just three out of 12 consultants are staff. Nine are

:08:15.:08:23.

locums. Employer modems is expensive than a standard appointment. There

:08:24.:08:30.

is the agency costs. They charge more. That is just recognised

:08:31.:08:36.

nationally. What is paramount is patient safety. We will always

:08:37.:08:40.

ensure our emergency departments are fully staffed. The basic layout is

:08:41.:08:45.

the same, so from a safety perspective, it should not be far

:08:46.:08:52.

from working theory and A This is the Northern Lincolnshire trust's

:08:53.:08:54.

latest weapon in the recruitment battle. As well as promoting the

:08:55.:08:59.

hospitals, they're trying to sell the area as a whole clip. Gorgeous

:09:00.:09:10.

landscape and friendly people. There is a real proximity with transport

:09:11.:09:16.

links. But both trusts are still in special measures after being

:09:17.:09:18.

investigated for high mortality rates. It won't enhances. I see it

:09:19.:09:26.

as a temporary blip. Hospital managers insist they're now

:09:27.:09:30.

casting their nets far and wide to attract A consultants to hospitals

:09:31.:09:32.

right across Lincolnshire Both Trusts insist they're making every

:09:33.:09:35.

effort to ensure more A consultants are put on permanent

:09:36.:09:39.

contracts. Two of Hull's MPs have met with the

:09:40.:09:43.

Energy Secretary to discuss the Government's commitment to renewable

:09:44.:09:45.

energy. Alan Johnson and Diana Johnson are seeking guarantees

:09:46.:09:48.

everything is being done to ensure Siemens goes ahead with plans to

:09:49.:09:51.

build a wind turbine manufacturing plant in the city. Our Political

:09:52.:09:54.

Editor Tim Iredale has been following events.

:09:55.:09:57.

The rising cost of energy is dominating the political headlines.

:09:58.:09:59.

The Government says the typical household bill will be cut by ?50 as

:10:00.:10:03.

part of its commitment to roll`back green levies. But the question of

:10:04.:10:07.

how we generate electricity in future is also making news. Hull's

:10:08.:10:11.

MPs today met the Energy Secretary to seek assurances about the

:10:12.:10:14.

proposed Siemens manufacturing plant in the city, which many hope will

:10:15.:10:17.

see the Humber region becoming a world`leader in servicing the

:10:18.:10:30.

offshore wind industry. In Siemens don't come to Hull, they won't come

:10:31.:10:35.

to the UK. I'm sure the public will get sick of hearing this. It has

:10:36.:10:39.

been on the course of three years. It is very much on the cards still.

:10:40.:10:43.

We need to get over this final hurdle and everything we have on Ed

:10:44.:10:48.

Davey was reassuring. The Department of Energy and Climate Change echoed

:10:49.:10:51.

Alan Johnson's words and said today's talks were "constructive".

:10:52.:10:53.

Ed Davey wasn't available for interview today, but last week in

:10:54.:10:57.

the Commons he defended the Government's record on bringing

:10:58.:11:05.

green jobs to the Humber. I do think the whole governments, working with

:11:06.:11:09.

colleagues, are doing our very best to ensure we get that supply`side,

:11:10.:11:14.

supply chain investment into the UK for our green sector. We may be

:11:15.:11:22.

working with him on that. The future of offshore wind in this country is

:11:23.:11:25.

far from certain. Last week, the German energy firm RWE scrapped

:11:26.:11:29.

plans to build a giant wind farm in the Bristol Channel. Some would say

:11:30.:11:32.

the government can't commit to investing in green energy and

:11:33.:11:35.

promise to keep bills down in the current political climate. Is the

:11:36.:11:46.

government doing enough on its green energy policies to make sure Siemens

:11:47.:11:48.

commits to Hull? If you want to get in touch, the

:11:49.:11:58.

number is on the screen there. Part of the M62 has been closed for

:11:59.:12:02.

much of the day after an accident early this morning. Five vehicles

:12:03.:12:05.

collided between Castleford and Rothwell. There were long tailbacks

:12:06.:12:08.

in the area after the motorway was closed in both directions. A police

:12:09.:12:12.

investigation is underway. Police investigating a chain of

:12:13.:12:15.

academy schools in Lincolnshire say they've passed a file to the Crown

:12:16.:12:19.

Prosecution Service. The former Chief Executive of the The Priory

:12:20.:12:22.

Federation, Richard Gilliland, quit after auditors found he had been

:12:23.:12:25.

spending school funds on personal items. Plans for 30 libraries in

:12:26.:12:33.

Lincolnshire to be run by voluntary groups have been accepted.

:12:34.:12:38.

Lincolnshire County Council also agreed to reduce opening hours at

:12:39.:12:41.

some bigger libraries, including Lincoln, Skegness and Gainsborough.

:12:42.:12:43.

The authority says the changes will lead to savings of ?1.5 million. We

:12:44.:12:55.

have to find the savings. A plus another ?80 million on top of that.

:12:56.:13:00.

Society is changing. We all have social media now. Tablet and phones

:13:01.:13:07.

and all the rest of it. When people access services, particularly

:13:08.:13:13.

library services, is a lot. Still ahead tonight: Tigers Boss

:13:14.:13:17.

Steve Bruce says it's time to forget about the club's name change and

:13:18.:13:26.

focus on football. I will define out the family who live here choose to

:13:27.:13:29.

light up their entire house at Christmas. Sarah Chand took

:13:30.:13:41.

tonight's picture. Helen Butler writes to me. Myself

:13:42.:13:57.

and other members saw this tie and thought of you. It is lawful. ``

:13:58.:14:18.

awful. Go on, get it on. The headline for the next 24 hours.

:14:19.:14:20.

Tomorrow is going headline for the next 24 hours.

:14:21.:14:25.

Tomorrow to be the best day of the week. Patchy rain might be linking

:14:26.:14:30.

in, but it will soon get out of the way. A bit of high pressure, but an

:14:31.:14:36.

early warning in place for Thursday, which could be a bit on the

:14:37.:14:43.

destructive side. Gales. One of two spot could get as high as 70 miles

:14:44.:14:51.

an hour in exposure. That will need monitoring carefully during the

:14:52.:14:56.

course of Thursday. In the short`term, it is very quiet. It has

:14:57.:15:00.

been another day with a lot of clouds. The cloud will thicken

:15:01.:15:09.

overnights. We have got a week outbreak of rain. It could lead to a

:15:10.:15:18.

touch of ground frost in countryside areas but no problems elsewhere. The

:15:19.:15:23.

sun will rise in the morning at around 7:59am. Just a little patch

:15:24.:15:34.

of rain in the far south first thing, it quickly slipping away.

:15:35.:15:39.

Then it is a lovely day. Lots of sunshine with lots of blue sky to

:15:40.:15:44.

come. The breeze will be a moderate west or south`westerly. Let's look

:15:45.:15:48.

at top temperatures. We are looking at highs of seven Celsius. It is

:15:49.:15:55.

very windy indeed on Thursday, with locally severe gales and some rain

:15:56.:16:00.

spreading from the North. Friday looks chilly. Much less windy and

:16:01.:16:08.

mostly dry with some sunshine. You realise I'm going haven't `` have

:16:09.:16:22.

the WIA on me. It's described as a landscape of

:16:23.:16:25.

international importance as a rich breeding ground for rare birds and

:16:26.:16:29.

wildlife. But the area known as the Humberhead Levels is also under

:16:30.:16:32.

threat. Stretching from North Nottinghamshire to East Yorkshire,

:16:33.:16:35.

it's made up of thousands of acres of wetlands, including a rare

:16:36.:16:43.

lowland peat bog. The area is at risk of drying out. .

:16:44.:17:02.

A once hidden landscape ` now being re`discovered. The Humberhead levels

:17:03.:17:07.

are home to rare birds and plants, unique peatlands, and the remains of

:17:08.:17:10.

medieval strip farming. All part of a huge network of wetlands. It is

:17:11.:17:14.

the water that is helping us recreate the peat bog. In North

:17:15.:17:18.

Lincolnshire lies the largest lowland peat bog in the country.

:17:19.:17:21.

Farming and peat mining are drying it out. The water usage reign of the

:17:22.:17:29.

murder into the drains. It was lost. The lottery money will help to

:17:30.:17:32.

reverse that. More dams will be built, shurbs are being cleared and

:17:33.:17:36.

goats are grazing here on the Crowle Moors. Damage to the bog is bad for

:17:37.:17:45.

wildlife and is bad for us too. It stores harmful gases like carbon

:17:46.:17:49.

dioxide. If it is allowed to dry out it releases those gases and

:17:50.:17:54.

scientists are concerned that contributes to climate change. There

:17:55.:17:58.

was also an economic reason for the correct in this wilderness. We stood

:17:59.:18:06.

in the middle of a bog area which is part of several thousand acres. It

:18:07.:18:10.

is almost like the biggest country parks in the country. The tourism

:18:11.:18:15.

potential is absolutely incredible. It already has a lot of tourism. A

:18:16.:18:20.

few miles south ` the patchwork of fields around Haxey ` will also

:18:21.:18:22.

benefit. Traditonal farming techniques are still practiced here.

:18:23.:18:29.

You're looking at a rear creation of a medieval landscape. This is how

:18:30.:18:33.

farming was done. Every single landowner would have owned a little

:18:34.:18:39.

strip and they would have farmed it. To get a real sense of the scale of

:18:40.:18:42.

this area it is best seen from the air. At the top of the Humber

:18:43.:18:49.

estuary, Blacktoft sands, is popular for bird watching. We have drained a

:18:50.:18:55.

lot of this areas but we still have a lot of chunks of habitat. It is

:18:56.:18:59.

important we keep these were future generations. This money will help

:19:00.:19:07.

this and will open the landscape up to visitors. Leaflets in Polish

:19:08.:19:18.

being handed out by a Lincolnshire Police to stop people drink`driving.

:19:19.:19:22.

Neighbourhood policing teams will give out leaflets to make people

:19:23.:19:27.

aware of the risks of drink`driving. So far, tibial have died and 79 had

:19:28.:19:31.

been injured in drink related collisions in Lincolnshire.

:19:32.:19:35.

Teaching staff from higher education colleges and universities are on

:19:36.:19:38.

strike today as part of a nationwide dispute with the government over

:19:39.:19:41.

pay. Universities in Hull and Lincoln say that any disruption is

:19:42.:19:45.

being kept to a minimum and services remain open for students. Trade

:19:46.:19:49.

unions say they're striking because staff have been offered a pay rise

:19:50.:19:54.

of 1%. Volunteers in Lincoln say they

:19:55.:19:56.

desperately need more people from ethnic minority groups to join the

:19:57.:20:01.

bone marrow register. 1600 people in the UK are waiting for a bone marrow

:20:02.:20:05.

transplant which is used to help treat blood cancer, such as

:20:06.:20:09.

leukaemia. Today the University of Lincoln held its first recruitment

:20:10.:20:12.

drive to encourage more students to sign up. We are trying to target 16

:20:13.:20:23.

to 30`year`olds, especially young males, because they donate a larger

:20:24.:20:27.

volume of bone marrow. We are also looking to sign up anyone from the

:20:28.:20:31.

Asian population, because only 4% of them have a match, so it is a

:20:32.:20:36.

desperate situation. Hull City manager Steve Bruce has

:20:37.:20:40.

called for a line to be drawn under the club naming row at Hull City.

:20:41.:20:43.

He's promised to speak to chairman Assem Allam about his proposal to

:20:44.:20:47.

change the name to Hull Tigers, but says he doesn't want the the row to

:20:48.:20:50.

distract from what's happening on the pitch. Our sports reporter Simon

:20:51.:20:55.

Clark spoke to Steve Bruce today. Job well done for Steve Bruce on

:20:56.:20:58.

Sunday, a 3`1 victory over Liverpool, a fifth win of the

:20:59.:21:01.

season, an ideal preparation to play leaders, Arsenal. There's just the

:21:02.:21:05.

niggling matter of the Hull City name change and Bruce's promise to

:21:06.:21:08.

speak to chairman Assem Allam about his proposal.

:21:09.:21:13.

In defence of the chairman, a misinterpretation could be there on

:21:14.:21:18.

the cards. I don't think he wanted supporters to go away and die and

:21:19.:21:21.

all this nonsense. I think he wants the situation to die. I think the

:21:22.:21:25.

quicker it does the better for me, that we're not wasting our energies

:21:26.:21:28.

on something, for me, is immaterial at the moment.

:21:29.:21:33.

Hull City set out to repeat their greatest show on the road. It came

:21:34.:21:39.

in 2008, Arsenal one, Hull City two. The skipper that famous day five

:21:40.:21:42.

seasons ago recalls the occasion well.

:21:43.:21:45.

I remember I was rooming with Dean Marney, the night before and we was
