Hot Topics: 13th November 2018

This week on Hot Topics Danny and Ian discussed fascinating facts about 5th November and Bonfire night, Commonly-used phrases and their origins, and Pencils and their sad demise!

Health Matters - NHS111, Hospitals, Stay Well


Health Correspondent Alan Bellinger with Beverley from NHS 111 & Danny


Five Issues in tonight’s DriveTime 
  • NHS 111
  • Hospital Reconfiguration
  • Stay Well This Winter
  • Open the Bag
  • NHS at 70

  
1. NHS 111
Discussion with Beverley Squirrel from NHS 111; we’ll be asking her
  • What made you want to become a Call Handler?
  • What training did you have before you "went live"?
  • You're clearly very good at this - do you enjoy it?  

  
2. Hospital Reconfiguration
The public meeting was held on OCT 23 – it was well attended – especially by people from Hemel Hempstead! The two core issues that are being examined are
  • A new build site for planned care? And
  • Have they correctly factored in the expected population growth?

 Only one comment – can you believe how long we’ve been talking about this?  

3. Stay Well This Winter
Much more on this next month but I thought DriveTimers would find this site useful
It is a great site telling you what to do if you get any of these ten common winter illnesses
  • Colds
  • Sore Throat
  • Asthma
  • Winter Vomiting
  • Painful Joints
  • Cold Sores
  • Heart Attacks
  • Cold Hands & Feet
  • Dry Skin
  • Flu

4. Open the Bag
Next time you go into a Pharmacy for your prescription you'll probably be asked to "Open the Bag"! That's because any problems can easily be rectified in the Pharmacy; any mistakes spotted after you've left the Pharmacy probably means medicines are wasted.

5. NHS at 70 – I need just over 2.4 miles a day to complete my NHS 1,000 miles – that’s just 119 to go!!!
