Go outside the Maelor and you’ll find the answer, a large number of ambulances were queued outside there this afternoon waiting to hand over patients in sweltering heat. If they can’t offload their current patient to the Emergency Department then they can’t move on the next. The blame doesn’t lie solely at the door of the ED though, where staff work their backsides off in distressing conditions. Cuts to social care funding and the closure of community hospital beds mean there is nowhere suitable for people to go, even when they no longer need a hospital bed. Unless funding is increased you will see this situation continue and potentially grow worse. The NHS doesn’t just experience winter pressures, they’re all year round now.
Also, hot weather causes an increase in respiratory related conditions, as well as road accidents and incidents on the coast, at reservoirs etc.March 6, 2018 at 11:39 pm in reply to: Shame on Councillors to refuse planning permission #145851
I am sure that all Councillors do their homework before what could be considered a foot in mouth remark or remarks, so they must have sufficient concerns to speak up against the granting of permissions.
If it was left to Top Managers to make decisions then bad ones would lead to fingers being pointed and allegations of bungs being made. Having Councillors making these decisions means that they are speaking for the people they represent and have no self interest or nothing to gain.
i also think it is shameful that Wrexham.com show the face of a Councillor against the headline here!
Anyone who watched the council meeting online could easily see what he looks like. If you’re in public office and you make ill thought out comments then don’t be shocked to see your mug next to them, or does accountability scare you?March 5, 2018 at 10:40 pm in reply to: Shame on Councillors to refuse planning permission #145785
Made for pretty grim reading to be honest. Way to stigmatise people with mental health issues.
Dick scoffed as he heard there was another Wrexham Tory with an amusing name, and boldly declared ‘Don, hold my beer.’
Hearing Don’s been replaced by new Tory MP candidate frontrunner Arthur Chance.May 11, 2017 at 6:24 pm in reply to: I don't like Corbyn's policies but the local alternative is Andrew Atkinson …. #131207
No UKIP candidate in Wrexham. I think that’s probably sealed it for the Tories then.May 5, 2017 at 11:10 am in reply to: Election outcome — who will make up the Groups and Leadership #130857
Mark Prtchard seemed to suggest it will be as you were, so the two Indy groups and Conservatives in coalition.
Of course, one group could make a power play and change the dynamic.
I’m part of said generation and interested in politics to the point of being an anorak, but must say the choice of two candidates in my ward is very uninspiring.
There have been some belting threads on this forum, but this is a personal favourite. Bravo.
Nailing my colours to the mast.
I hope for the following result
Independents ( Pritchards group) 11
Independent (Bithells group) 8
Lib Dems 5
Hopefully we have a Labour, Lib Dem, Plaid coalition with Councillor Dana Davies leading. Just like the way she challenges.
Why? Because I see this as an alternative to the current administration and watching the webcasts it seems to me that the Labour lot are the only ones questioning and challenging. Will Mark Pritchard earn his seat this time, will those Councillors who left the Labour lot over Splash Magic earn the wrath of the electorate? Will the turn out be low? Soo many variables…..but its exiting.
I can’t see the cause for enthusiasm in the Labour Group. It’s all a big soap opera, Indys are now carrying the can for decisions they used to oppose and ditto Labour opposing decisions they would have enacted themselves about two years ago. Makes you wonder where the real power lies in local authorities.
