Disabled rights
I AM amazed at the views of Mr King, of Kings Floorings, with reference to the disabled badge holders of Newark (Firm Fined Despite Paying For Permit, Advertiser, August 14).

Disabled people who live or visit Newark for whatever purpose have the right, just as Mr King, to use public roads.

I would like to remind him that a lot of the disabled of this town and area have in the past suffered because they were prepared to put their bodies on the line for the sole purpose of helping people like Mr King, and the like.

At least most, if not all, disabled people in Newark are spending their money in the town to the benefit of businesses.

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.
