'We must move from a "sickness service" to one that provides proactive, joined up, preventative care, which in turn will enable people to live independent and healthy lives in their communities for as long as possible.'


TRAVEL: East Coast Main Line franchise: Keolis/Eurostar East Coast Ltd favourites to win contract

The Doodle

The following email was received yesterday:

"Hi Everyone

I’m looking for someone to deliver 40 copies of “the Doodle”.  Just Wellhead Lane, 1-10 Ten Row and then the rest of the left hand side (not the OAPs bungalows).

I can drop “the Doodles” off to you, or let you know when you can pick them up from “the Doodle” box by my garage.

Thank you

Jilly B
