Police would like to speak to this man after mouthwash was stolen from Boots in Newark.
I am thrilled that we are to have a new CT scanner at Newark Hospital (Victory: U-turn On Scanner, Advertiser, August 28). This is certainly a U-turn, and a much-needed one.
Residents of Newark and surrounding areas have spoken out and I hope they will continue to do so. My thanks go to all those who signed the petition that I had, and the Advertiser for its part and support, along with other campaigners who speak up to save our wonderful hospital. It is surprising how we are listened to when we speak with one voice and long may this continue.
— DOREEN LANGFORD, Marlborough Close, Newark.
Fight goes on
THIS week the Advertiser is delighted to report a major u-turn by the organisation that runs Newark Hospital. Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has backtracked completely and decided that, rather than remove the permanent CT scanner from the hospital, it will instead install a new one at a cost of £½m.
That’s quite a change of mind. The original decision to remove the scanner, which was paid for in part by public fundraising, prompted outrage on top of the resentment and anger already caused by cuts to services at the hospital. Even Newark and Sherwood Clinical Comm-issioning Group, which plans services for the hospital, distanced itself from the scanner decision.
