Make MIU bigger
Can anyone explain why money is going to be spent altering the entrance to New-ark Hospital’s Minor Injuries Unit and reducing the planned original internal area by 50% from 207sq m to 98sq m?
We do not need GPs at the hospital — we have surgeries for that. We need doctors at the hospital and the MIU should be enlarged. If more people were taken to Newark Hospital by EMAS, the time saved by not going to King’s Mill, QMC or Lincoln means we wouldn’t have to wait so long for ambulances and have people waiting for two hours.

Break the habit
THE health and lifestyle arguments for not smoking are overwhelming, yet thousands take up the habit every year. Almost two-thirds of smokers are said to start before they are 18.
As so many smokers start before they are legally old enough to buy tobacco, anything that can be done to educate young people about the risks of smoking is to be welcomed. Newark and Sherwood District Council’s introduction of a voluntary smoking ban in play areas falls into that category. The initiative is aimed at parents and is also designed to cut the number of children who start smoking.
