Getting it right
I agree with the policy of right place, first time, for heart, stroke and head injuries.

But in the case of Mrs Kath Coulter (Minor Injuries Staff Praised For Life-saving Care, Advertiser, August 4) who took her husband to Newark Hospital, she did exactly the right thing not knowing what his condition was and, in this instance, it seems to have been the right place, first time.

The staff at Newark Hospital did a wonderful job reviving Mr Coulter before his transfer to Nottingham City Hospital.

It has also been reported that there had been 576 more emergency admissions to King’s Mill Hospital, Sutton-in-Ashfield, in the first two months of this financial year, but from which districts we do not know.

Golden dreams
Congratulations go to Shona McCallin, of Dry Doddington, who has returned home from Rio with an extra item in her luggage — an Olympic gold medal. It is a symbol of years of hard work and dedication that started at Newark Hockey Club.

The medal is just reward for a team that went unbeaten throughout the Rio tournament. Millions of people watched the Great Britain ladies’ hockey team win the nail-biting penalty shoot-out in the final against the Netherlands that sealed one of sports’ most sought-after prizes.

Hopefully some of those watching would have been inspired by seeing the team celebrating on top of the podium to take up a sport and start the chase for the Olympic dream.

The ladies’ hockey team gold was one of 27 won by Great Britain in its most successful ever Games, eclipsing even London 2012. Medals have been won in sports from cycling to showjumping and from swimming to athletics. Hardly a day has gone by in the last two weeks without news of medal wins.
