  1. Patients missing out on extra GP appointments

    Health bosses in Lincolnshire say patients are missing out on GP appointments because they are not aware that they can book in the evening or at the weekend.

    Dr Leke Oyedotun

    GPs say most of the appointments aren't being filled and many people are making unncessary trips to Accident and Emergency.

    A new scheme is underway in Louth whereby patients can see their doctor in the evening or at the weekend. Dr Leke Oyedotun is one of the regular doctors on duty.

    He says: "The appointments are a little bit longer. Most GP appointments are for 10 minutes, this is for 15 minutes so it does take in to account that we don't know the patients. But in our GP practices, we don't know all our patients, we get to meet them over time.

    "It is a bit tricky but most doctors are well equipped in dealing with uncertainty and new patients."

    Operation Tramline saw officers take to the highway in an unmarked HGV lorry to pick up motorists who were breaking the law or endangering other members of the public.

    The offences included drivers texting, falling asleep and even changing their clothes.

    Nine verbal warnings were handed out and 33 drivers will have to take an education course, pay a fine or take points on their licence.

    Quote Message: We witnessed one man steering a car with his knees as he used two hands to type on a mobile phone. In another incident, a woman was on her phone, holding it to ear, for several miles traveling at speed. We also witnessed a lorry driver take his seat belt off, remove his t-shirt and reach into his bag, get a clean shirt, no doubt to put on, before he realised we’d seen him." from Insp Ewan Gell Specialist Operations Unit

  9. Lincoln's Usher Gallery to continue with art exhibits?

    The future of the Usher Gallery in Lincoln could still involve art exhibitions if a third party can be found to run the venue.

    The gallery is currently run by Lincolnshire County Council but the authority wants to change the use of the building to incorporate registry and celebration services as part of plans to restructure heritage provisions.

    But the City of Lincoln Council which owns the building and collections has objected and a public consultation attracted more opposition than support.

    County councillors will vote on 3 September on a proposal to work with a third party who may want to run the gallery themselves.

    If a solution can't be found and the city council continues to object, Lincolnshire County Council says it will close the building and walk away.
