Treatment delay
The article, A&E Handover Times Above Target Figure (Advertiser, September 24) gave details of long delays experienced by patients in ambulances waiting outside King’s Mill and Lincoln hospitals.

While the target set by the NHS for patient handovers is within 15 minutes, the majority (more than 70%) of all Newark emergencies exceeded that. Some waited two hours or longer.

In 2012 David Flory, as deputy head of the NHS, writing about ambulance to hospital handover times, stated: “There should be no doubt that the delays have an adverse impact on patient experience of the service and increase risk to patient safety.”

For Newark patients, however, the poor experience of the service and the safety risk they are exposed to are not just confined to the poor hand-over times.

Chance meeting
AREALISTIC opportunity presents itself to finally provide pupils at Newark Orchard School with the learning environment they deserve. The school, which caters for pupils with special needs, is on two main sites — Appletongate and London Road.

The Advertiser has led the way in highlighting the dilapidated state of the outdated buildings on both sites that are no longer fit for purpose and is backing a campaign by parents to provide pupils with the school they should have.

No youngsters should go to a school where roofs leak and buckets are used to catch rainwater that drips through.

Additional problems at the Orchard include doors not being wide enough for wheelchairs and standing frames to fit through.
