Pilot scheme between fire, ambulance and police services saves lives AND taxpayer's money

A pilot project between all three emergency services is saving lives and money. 

Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service and South Central Ambulance Service have joined forces to gain entry to patients who need help quickly. 

This was previously something police would have to help with but a one-year trial saw firefighters attend 1,347 calls to help ambulance crews. 

Each call-out took an average of 20 minutes and adds up to 56 working days which means ambulance staff were able to get to their patients faster and back on the road again.

This is a fantastic example of how blue light services can work together to protect the people of Hampshire and provide the public with the best possible value for money. We are often able to attend these incidents quicker than police which means the ambulance can get to the people who need help quicker and the police have more time to fight crime.”

Southampton university receives 'record' £300m public bond

The University of Southampton has revealed it has successfully issued a £300m public bond. 

It's the largest in the university's 155 year history and is expected to allow the institution to invest in facilities and infrastructure. 

The 40-year bond, which will mature in 2057 and is subject to a fixed interest rate of 2.25 per cent, will provide half of a £600m total investment the university has planned over the next 10 years. 

The remainder of the money will come from internal funds. 

The success of our bond issue is a huge vote of confidence by investors in our university and our strategy for the future. The University of Southampton is an exceptional university with a global reputation for our education, research and innovation. This investment will ensure we continue to provide a world-class teaching and research environment for students and staff, all underpinned by cutting edge technology.”

'Unsustainable' GP surgery to close

A Portsmouth doctors' surgery says it has been forced to close in June because it has been unable to recruit a new GP or merge with another practice and is "therefore unsustainable".

In an open letter, Queens Road Surgery says: "Small practices are finding it harder to meet the needs of their patients for a number of reasons, including not being able to recruit extra General Practitioners and tightening budgets."

The local NHS has pledged to find a new GP in the city for the surgery's 5,500 patients, but says the two nearest practices do not have capacity for all of them.

It would be inappropriate to comment on a draft report which has yet to be published. I do however want to reassure Islanders, patients and the public that we take these issues very seriously and on behalf of the Trust I want to apologise for where there have been failings. Staff have been working hard to address the issues raised by the CQC since they were brought to our attention.
