A survey published today by the BBC has detailed the performance targets for all the NHS trusts, it makes grim reading for patients living in this area. Both Torbay and RDE Trusts failed to meet targets for A&E, cancer care, and planned ops & care. Torbay fared significantly worse than RDE, which doesn't surprise me in the least. The results can be found by entering a postcode here ...
Well that report was a waste of time and money. Chapter 8 is a hoot; the vision of Dawlish in 2018. Whoever wrote that was off their head.
Unlike Councillors, the public do not have access to Council Tax funds to satisfy a vanity project. I wonder how much the doomed woodlouse on the Lawn folly cost local taxpayers, before it was binned?
@"Diana Mond" - Who said ex-Councillors are not allowed an opinion about Dawlish? I'm merely pointing out this particular ex-Councillor has form for wanting to change the lawn. @The Observer - the ex-Councillor is Robert Vickery.
I hear that an ex-Councillor who was involved in a previous attempt to alter the Lawn is strongly supporting the proposed play park too. Some things never change.
These petitions are completely worthless, anybody can sign them numerous times under false names. Anyone who thinks such a petiton actually sways a decision is deluded.
The originator of this petition does seem have a bee in his bonnet about "old people".
Lots of surgeries in the past used premium rate contact numbers, until NHS England put a stop to the dubious practice. http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/millions-patients-still-being-ripped-off-5670691
@majorp you have been extremely fortunate in your dealings with the barton surgery, my view of that practice is unprintable on this forum.
No, Mrs C, Flower was merely expressing their opinion. Do try to keep up.
