Welcome to South Today. so it's goodbye from me,

:00:00.:00:00.

In tonight's programme: Hundreds of operations are cancelled as two

:00:00.:00:07.

of our hospitals struggle to cope but plans to change the way the NHS

:00:08.:00:10.

cares for patients are already meeting local opposition.

:00:11.:00:24.

I think it really should think again and take on board the value of

:00:25.:00:33.

community hospitals. Our hospitals should have beds.

:00:34.:00:35.

How prosthetic limbs are making life better in the workplace

:00:36.:00:39.

The former Royal Marine who's tackling the world's five

biggest to raise awareness of mental health issues.

:00:45.:00:52.

Something happens when you are on active service and when you come

:00:53.:00:58.

back things change. I felt like I was in a different world. Join me

:00:59.:01:07.

for high tea at Highclere Castle. A piece of real life history has come

:01:08.:01:08.

home. Tonight, two hospitals announce

:01:09.:01:14.

they are cancelling 100 operations to help relieve the workload

:01:15.:01:17.

on their busy emergency departments. They blame unprecedented pressure

:01:18.:01:22.

for having to cancel hip, knee and other orthopaedic surgery

:01:23.:01:24.

in Basingstoke and Winchester. It comes as the NHS tries to change

:01:25.:01:30.

the way it cares for patients - using fewer hospital beds

:01:31.:01:33.

and more community care. We'll be reporting on how those

:01:34.:01:37.

plans are causing protests in Dorset, but first we go live

:01:38.:01:39.

to the Royal Hampshire County Hospital in Winchester

:01:40.:01:43.

and our health correspondent, Well, today, yesterday

:01:44.:01:44.

and all of last week, they've been cancelling operations

:01:45.:01:53.

here at Winchester and at It's part of a two-week stoppage

:01:54.:01:55.

of almost all orthopaedic surgery to allow more emergency patients

:01:56.:02:01.

to be treated. By that, I mean finding beds or them

:02:02.:02:11.

because that's the problem. So they're using surgical

:02:12.:02:18.

beds to help take these It's not unusual for

:02:19.:02:20.

hospitals to do this. In the last few weeks,

:02:21.:02:26.

three operations have been cancelled in Poole, ten in Southampton

:02:27.:02:29.

and 11 in Bournemouth. But, of course, the NHS is now

:02:30.:02:36.

planning to cut a lot of hospital beds and hospital services over

:02:37.:02:40.

the next few years and move more It's a campaign that's

:02:41.:02:43.

quickly gained momentum. People here in Shaftesbury

:02:44.:02:58.

in North Dorset are fighting to save 15 beds at the town's

:02:59.:03:01.

Westminster Memorial Hospital. It's an issue that's got

:03:02.:03:03.

the whole town talking. I think it's awful. I want to keep

:03:04.:03:20.

it, absolutely. It must keep going at any cost. We do need a little

:03:21.:03:25.

hospital round here. Shaftesbury covers a wide area.

:03:26.:03:28.

Along with many other parts of the NHS, Dorset's Clinical

:03:29.:03:30.

Commissioning Group is proposing changes to everything

:03:31.:03:32.

from the county's big three acute hospitals

:03:33.:03:34.

The proposal is to keep beds in the community hospitals but to close all

:03:35.:03:48.

15 beds here at the hospital in Shaftesbury. But a range of medical

:03:49.:03:53.

services would still be provided in the town. I think they really should

:03:54.:03:58.

think about and take on board the value of community hospitals. This

:03:59.:04:00.

is a community. The Clinical Commissioning Group

:04:01.:04:02.

argues changes have got to be made because of a rising population,

:04:03.:04:05.

increasing demand and growing Change is always very difficult

:04:06.:04:15.

especially in the local community and I absolutely understand people's

:04:16.:04:20.

fears. I can only reassure them that we are trying to do the best for the

:04:21.:04:24.

widest population in North Dorset. It is not about cutting beds but

:04:25.:04:28.

providing that care in a different manner and keeping people at home.

:04:29.:04:31.

In their campaign HQ in the high street, these people want

:04:32.:04:33.

Dr Yule and her colleagues to have a rethink.

:04:34.:04:35.

So far, around 1500 people in this area have filled

:04:36.:04:38.

Final decisions will be made later this year.

:04:39.:04:55.

The hospital trust here said it was only cancelling these

:04:56.:05:03.

operations because of unprecedented pressures on its

:05:04.:05:05.

That's something I've heard a lot over the past few months.

:05:06.:05:13.

We all know that A are busy places, but this feels

:05:14.:05:15.

The problem is not the A It is the lack of beds for patients to go

:05:16.:05:26.

to. In this hospital and Basingstoke,

:05:27.:05:29.

tonight, there are 80 people who are fit to go home,

:05:30.:05:31.

but are still in beds. Not their fault, but the harsh

:05:32.:05:40.

reality is, if they weren't there, those operations probably

:05:41.:05:42.

wouldn't be cancelled. So how is reducing the number of

:05:43.:05:49.

beds going to help all of this? This is the plan the NHS

:05:50.:05:57.

is grappling with - how to keep hospital beds for people

:05:58.:06:03.

who really need them but, at the same time, making

:06:04.:06:06.

sure that vulnerable, frail patients who are medically fit

:06:07.:06:08.

are still properly looked after. There is a lot of work being done on

:06:09.:06:20.

that in the moment, a lot of good ideas, we will have to see if it

:06:21.:06:22.

happens, as they hope it will. Across the world, it's estimated

:06:23.:06:25.

that up to 1.2 billion people live That's equivalent to

:06:26.:06:28.

the population of China. In the UK, around one in five people

:06:29.:06:31.

is classed as having a disability and is less likely to be

:06:32.:06:34.

in employment as a result. Disabilities can take

:06:35.:06:37.

different forms but, for those who have lost a limb,

early prosthetic leg - it dates back to the 1930s -

:07:07.:07:09.

but I've been to meet a man who benefits from the very latest

:07:10.:07:13.

prothetic technology. Having finished his day job in IT,

:07:14.:07:18.

Steve Haines is getting ready He lost his right leg 30 years ago

in a motorbike accident. There is obviously a bonus

to getting people back into work and, if people are capable of doing

:07:30.:07:34.

some sort of job, then I'd rather be working than sat

:07:35.:07:37.

at home all day doing nothing. Blatchford are world leaders

by the society is huge. So, in a way, by reducing the cost

:07:55.:08:03.

of care, the long-term cost of care, all of these little factors,

:08:04.:08:07.

when you add them up, Over time, the technology

:08:08.:08:09.

has made huge leaps. A microprocessor-controlled knee

stability and confidence. It allows me to walk

down each step, so I can walk one step at a time,

:08:28.:08:29.

with are extremely good They will get better

:08:30.:08:32.

but they work pretty well now. These advances have cut the cost

:08:33.:08:39.

of long-term care and enabled patients to continue an active

:08:40.:08:42.

working life, but It's estimated that there

:08:43.:08:46.

are 10 million people in need of a prosthesis in Asia and Africa

:08:47.:08:50.

and a further 5 million Joining me here at Blatchford

:08:51.:08:54.

in Basingstoke is the Adrian, we just heard from Steve

:08:55.:09:00.

that he's holding down two jobs. How extensive is the support

:09:01.:09:05.

on offer across the economy? Well, Blatchford are a leading

:09:06.:09:09.

provider of technology and services for patients with limb loss

:09:10.:09:11.

and our aim is to try to make sure they lead as full

:09:12.:09:14.

and as active a life as possible. Within the UK, there are around

:09:15.:09:18.

44,000 active amputees, and we believe that there

:09:19.:09:23.

are a number of those amputees who could benefit

:09:24.:09:26.

from the use of new technologies to improve their lives

:09:27.:09:28.

and be able to fulfil So what's the demand

:09:29.:09:32.

globally for this industry? In the global economy,

:09:33.:09:38.

there are millions of patients The increase in peripheral vascular

:09:39.:09:41.

disease and diabetes means there are a number of those patients

:09:42.:09:48.

out there that are increasing and requiring this type

of technology as well as in conflict zones, where you have military

:09:52.:09:54.

personnel or patients who are involved within the conflict

:09:55.:09:57.

who are getting injured. Adrian, thank you for

:09:58.:10:00.

joining me in Basingstoke. You might be wondering who gets

:10:01.:10:03.

access to this technolology. Well, the good news is that the NHS

:10:04.:10:06.

has recently agreed to fund this, the latest microprocessor-controlled

:10:07.:10:10.

knee, making this accessible A mother whose baby son died

:10:11.:10:11.

at a month old is raising money to buy a cuddle cot to help other

:10:12.:10:31.

bereaved parents in West Berkshire. These specially adapted cribs allow

:10:32.:10:34.

babies to be brought home after they've died so family members

:10:35.:10:36.

can spend a little time with them. We didn't want to lose our son

:10:37.:10:39.

and we fought for him as hard as we could and he fought as hard

:10:40.:10:44.

as he could but it got to the point where we couldn't push him any more

:10:45.:10:48.

and he was really struggling. Beau was just a month

:10:49.:10:51.

old when he died. He'd been born with a heart defect

:10:52.:10:53.

that couldn't be repaired. As his health worsened in hospital,

:10:54.:10:55.

his parents had to say goodbye. We did spend time with Beau before

:10:56.:11:00.

he passed away and then, within probably two hours,

:11:01.:11:03.

he was taken away from us They were then offered the chance

:11:04.:11:06.

to take Beau to a hospice to spend time with him

:11:07.:11:12.

in a special cool room. But they had his twin sister to care

:11:13.:11:15.

for so they couldn't. There's one at Naomi House

:11:16.:11:19.

Hospice near Winchester. Because it's portable and movable,

:11:20.:11:33.

they can lift the cuddle cot out, wrap it around the baby or the child

:11:34.:11:36.

and then cuddle their baby as opposed to a very sudden one

:11:37.:11:40.

minute the child is alive and with you and the next

:11:41.:11:43.

minute they've gone away, But that little time with the child

:11:44.:11:48.

after they've died helps the family to start to come to terms

:11:49.:11:54.

with where they are now. Charlene is busy bringing up

:11:55.:12:01.

Beau's twin sister, Esme, but she's also raising funds to pay

:12:02.:12:04.

for a portable cuddle cot for use I think it would have been lovely

:12:05.:12:08.

to have him home, you know. Probably the saddest thing

:12:09.:12:29.

was leaving him at hospital, knowing that we had to come home,

:12:30.:12:31.

and it did feel that we were leaving For more information on Charlene's

The search is underway to find the 3,500 workers who'll be needed

:12:53.:12:54.

Much of the town centre has been flattened to make way for new shops,

:12:55.:12:59.

bars and restaurants as part of the scheme, which

:13:00.:13:01.

Supporters say they're not the kind of jobs the new town was established

:13:02.:13:06.

to create but they're vital to Bracknell's future prosperity.

:13:07.:13:12.

A woman from West Sussex who's had breast implants removed

:13:13.:13:14.

following health concerns is urging women to think twice before

:13:15.:13:17.

Annette Stevens from Bognor Regis spent more than ?5,000 on a breast

:13:18.:13:25.

enlargement in 2003 but spent ?6,000 having the implants removed last

:13:26.:13:28.

year because she believed they were poisoning her.

:13:29.:13:33.

Annette Stevens with the implants which were inside her

:13:34.:13:38.

They were not bigger. They were full.

:13:39.:13:50.

Annette told me her implants had leaked.

:13:51.:13:51.

In recent years, she's suffered hair loss, depression,

:13:52.:13:53.

insomnia, memory loss and other health problems.

:13:54.:13:56.

Last October, Annette spent ?6,000 on an operation in Holland

:13:57.:13:59.

She said she felt relieved and has since noticed health improvements.

:14:00.:14:05.

I don't feel so cold any more, I've got a little bit more

:14:06.:14:09.

I feel like my body's thanking me for listening to all of the symptoms

:14:10.:14:18.

that I had that I thought I was just getting old.

:14:19.:14:20.

Annette's implants were manufactured by a company called Silimed.

:14:21.:14:22.

In 2015, their distribution was suspended while the EU

:14:23.:14:25.

Last October, a report by the Dutch public health organisation RIVM

:14:26.:14:29.

indicated the risk to patients was low and the government is now

:14:30.:14:32.

The Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory

:14:33.:14:40.

I don't know why I felt the need to have implants but,

:14:41.:14:58.

if you look at the day and age we're in and how we're bombarded with

:14:59.:15:11.

these pictures of being perfect, you know, boobs aren't everything.

:15:12.:15:14.

Nobody's perfect and it's about loving the skin you're in,

:15:15.:15:17.

loving who you are as a person, and it's taken me quite a long

:15:18.:15:20.

Annette originally chose implants to help her confidence but now says

:15:21.:15:24.

removing them has boosted it even more.

:15:25.:15:30.

A former Royal Marine from Tidworth in Wiltshire who's recovering

:15:31.:15:33.

from post-traumatic stress disorder is now trying for a world record.

:15:34.:15:38.

Louis Nethercott will try to crawl, swim and trek his way

:15:39.:15:41.

across the world's five largest islands unaided.

:15:42.:15:45.

He's already completed the first stage - the jungles of Borneo.

:15:46.:15:49.

Next, he'll head to Papua New Guinea then to Madagascar and Greenland

:15:50.:15:52.

before finishing at Baffin Island in Canada.

:15:53.:15:54.

I found it very hard to relax and chill out.

:15:55.:16:01.

I was always expecting something to happen.

:16:02.:16:03.

Louis was medically discharged from the Marines a few months ago

:16:04.:16:07.

after returning home from the front line in Afghanistan.

:16:08.:16:11.

He wants to raise awareness about the impact

:16:12.:16:13.

My section lost two guys and a few others were injured

:16:14.:16:19.

Something happens when you are on active service and,

:16:20.:16:24.

when you come back, things have changed.

:16:25.:16:26.

I felt like I was sort of in a different world.

:16:27.:16:29.

It took just 40 days for former Marines Louis Nethercott

:16:30.:16:32.

and Anthony Lambert to get across Borneo - the first

:16:33.:16:35.

of the world's five biggest islands they're determined to conquer.

:16:36.:16:40.

For Louis, the challenge has become a way of coping

:16:41.:16:43.

We were just completely on our own in the jungle

:16:44.:16:48.

there with nobody to be seen for miles.

:16:49.:16:54.

It was an incredible experience but it was also incredibly tough,

:16:55.:16:57.

Loads of people go the Poles nowadays, up Everest.

:16:58.:17:00.

We wanted to come up with one that was a bit unique.

:17:01.:17:03.

By taking on this expedition, he wants to raise funds

:17:04.:17:06.

for the forces' charities that are helping him and hundreds

:17:07.:17:08.

To think we've got another four ahead of us, I think we just have

:17:09.:17:17.

to look at one at a time and, once that's done, move

:17:18.:17:20.

If I just think of all four in my head, it becomes

:17:21.:17:24.

The pair will set off for Papa New Guinea

:17:25.:17:27.

They hope to finish all five islands at some point next year -

:17:28.:17:32.

an endurance test that will push them almost to the limit.

:17:33.:17:41.

Got some horse racing news for you, which is disappointing.

:17:42.:17:52.

Dorset-trained racehorse Thistlecrack has been ruled out

:17:53.:17:54.

Colin Tizzard's horse was the favourite for jump racing's

:17:55.:18:00.

Tizzard still has leading fancies Cue Card and Native

Tonight, the teams in third and fourth clash in another huge

:18:20.:18:22.

game for the promotion chasers Jaap Stam's Reading

:18:23.:18:24.

It's live on BBC Radio Berkshire tonight.

:18:25.:18:26.

Tim Dellor will be commentating as the Royals aim to go seven unbeaten.

:18:27.:18:36.

Anybody who has been following these royals know it is the Terriers and

:18:37.:18:43.

cookies have been biting at their heels. Last season these two sides

:18:44.:18:50.

met on four occasions. Earlier this season, Reading beat Huddersfield at

:18:51.:18:54.

the Madejski Stadium. Whichever team wins the night, will finish third in

:18:55.:18:59.

the Champion ship. We kick off here at 7:45pm.

:19:00.:19:00.

Aldershot Town have revealed they've rejected an approach

:19:01.:19:02.

for their management team led by Gary Waddock.

:19:03.:19:04.

In a statement, the national league side say an unnamed League 1 club

:19:05.:19:07.

masked to speak to Waddock and assistant James Rowe.

:19:08.:19:10.

Both men have informed the club they're not interested in pursuing

:19:11.:19:12.

Now to the story of the boxer who recovered from a freak injury

:19:13.:19:16.

to fight his way back to the summit of the amateur game.

:19:17.:19:19.

Greg Bridet saw his Olympic dreams shattered by a series of setbacks

:19:20.:19:22.

but the Heart of Portsmouth boxer who trains at Southampton solent

:19:23.:19:25.

university was back in the ring for a big win this past weekend.

:19:26.:19:33.

Greg Bridet was back in the gym today and he is back on the boxing

:19:34.:19:40.

scene in the big way. This weekend the former heavyweight champion won

:19:41.:19:44.

the English title, quite a comeback for a fighter of Olympic dreams were

:19:45.:19:49.

dashed by a freak injury two years ago. Having lunch, he got pain in

:19:50.:19:59.

his chest. I went to A, collapsed, and are not a few hours I could have

:20:00.:20:04.

died, my heart had no more room for better go and the chest cavity. I

:20:05.:20:10.

had titanium staples. Big obstacle to overcome but it was good, I am

:20:11.:20:15.

stronger for it. BBC Saturday featured Greg in 2013. He was

:20:16.:20:21.

targeting the Olympics in Rio. He was an emotional moment when he beat

:20:22.:20:27.

Mason Holmes this weekend. Relief, the weight of the world lifted from

:20:28.:20:31.

my shoulders. The implication almost, getting back bad fortune I

:20:32.:20:40.

had had. The 27-year-old is now planning his next move and has also

:20:41.:20:45.

sparred with Chris Eubank junior. Massive learning experience. A

:20:46.:20:50.

little pointers here and there, he only improved by placing superior

:20:51.:20:57.

opponents. I would also rather be a good amateur rather than a bad pro.

:20:58.:21:02.

I'm not ruling anything out at the moment. Greg Bridet will compete the

:21:03.:21:10.

Championships next month, further evidence his back punching his

Three years on, Saints lost the League Cup final,

It was such magic. This is a man that manage the cup winning team, it

all that, Wembley sticks and people's minds. Oh, my word! We

could be seeing scenes like that again soon.

An album of photographs revealing the real Downton Abbey

:22:11.:22:12.

It shows life at Highclere Castle in Berkshire more than 120 years ago -

:22:13.:22:17.

around the time the ITV drama that's filmed there was first set.

:22:18.:22:19.

The album contains 44 photographs of the 80-bedroom house,

:22:20.:22:22.

staff and grounds, providing a fascinating glimpse into the lives

:22:23.:22:25.

of the fifth Earl of Carnarvon, who was best known for helping

:22:26.:22:29.

to discover the Egyptian tomb of Tutankhamen in 1922.

:22:30.:22:32.

A special delivery is one of the UK's most recognisable house is.

:22:33.:22:55.

Thank you. An album that provides a window into the real-life Downton

:22:56.:22:59.

Abbey is returning home after more than a century. It is like a jigsaw

:23:00.:23:04.

puzzle and you were trying to piece things back together again, figure

:23:05.:23:08.

out who was here, the names and if you were not quite sure of

:23:09.:23:15.

something, the piano, I have put in the drawing-room. The 1895 album the

:23:16.:23:20.

44 photographs was found in a normal house clearance in Dorset. The

:23:21.:23:26.

reason why was there is yet known. I am not sure whether that was

:23:27.:23:30.

Streatfeild, the butler. It was set to go under the hammer with a ?500

:23:31.:23:35.

price tag but despite huge interest from around the world it has been

:23:36.:23:39.

sold privately to the Highclere estate. Everybody has been delighted

:23:40.:23:45.

with the outcome, it has come back. But it could have gone to an

:23:46.:23:50.

American bidder. It may well have done but sometimes what is so nice

:23:51.:23:59.

is it is not all about money. As the ITV series follows the Earl of

:24:00.:24:04.

Grantham and his family, this album features a snapshot of the life that

:24:08.:24:15.

Howard Carter's discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun in the 1920s. It

:24:16.:24:20.

also marks a visitor Prince Edwards. But it is not just the aristocracy

:24:21.:24:28.

featured here. In 1895, Highclere would have been working house and

:24:29.:24:32.

would have been 60 members of staff here and interestingly this album

:24:33.:24:35.

also shows what life would have been 60 members of staff here and

:24:36.:24:37.

interestingly this album also shows what life would be like backstairs.

:24:38.:24:42.

I know my place! I think that is what makes these house is live.

:24:43.:24:48.

Louis and Georgian everybody... That is how it works. The photos could be

:24:49.:24:52.

on display when the house opens its doors in the summer, far from a work

the brighter spells Doris is on her way. Through the

:25:16.:25:29.

course of the night, we are expecting a fair amount of cloud and

:25:30.:25:33.

patchy rain in places, drizzly conditions, but drier periods as

:25:34.:25:38.

well and mild temperatures. Winds will increase in strength during the

:25:39.:25:41.

course of the night. That will keep the mist and fog at the in most

:25:42.:25:46.

places with temperatures falling to 9-11 C. A dam start the day

:25:47.:25:53.

tomorrow, outbreaks of rain, one or two brighter spells, cloudy tomorrow

:26:04.:26:08.

through the early hours of Thursday morning and by Thursday morning we

:26:09.:26:11.

are expecting the next weather system which is part of storm Doris

:26:12.:26:17.

and the area of pressure moving in from the Atlantic. Storm Doris is

:26:18.:26:21.

expecting to affect areas in Midlands but for us in the south,

:26:22.:26:26.

Oxfordshire has a Met Office wind warning. The rain will be very heavy

:26:27.:26:32.

for the rush-hour dry to work. Most of the rain clears at lunchtime.

:26:33.:26:36.

That is when the winds will try them and that is when we expect the

:26:37.:26:40.

strongest of the winds. Wind gusts in Oxfordshire 60 mph, elsewhere,

:26:41.:26:50.

50-55 mph. The low pressure pulls away into the North Sea and through

:26:51.:26:53.

the course of Thursday afternoon in the evening, that is when the winds

:26:54.:26:58.

will ease. There is that Met Office wind warning to Oxfordshire on

:26:59.:27:05.

Thursday through the afternoon in particular. Friday, a lot of cloud.

:27:06.:27:10.

It will break to allow the sunny spells and the odd isolated shower

:27:11.:27:15.

that we expect rain at times do the course of Saturday with showers on

:27:16.:27:20.

Sunday. Fairly cloudy of the next few days, limited brightness, and

:27:21.:27:24.

Doris arrives on Thursday. We have been waiting for that.
