• Daytime Social Provision for Adults with Disabilities
    Young people with disabilities need to maintain their skills and their mental health into their adult lives. They are vulnerable adults and need to be able to access safe places and maintain social contact with their friends. My daughter doesn't understand why she is no longer seeing her friends at college. She can no longer do the unpaid work she had been doing for a number of years because of a medical condition. She is has no routine and no focus in her life for 6 days a week. I am a pensioner with health problems and unable to consistently take her to places where she can meet others and anyway there is no daytime place where she can find activities to keep her meaningfully occupied. One day a week she attends a local drama group run by a charity and her whole life revolves around this one activity.

  • Urinary Tract Infections tested for and prescribed for by a pharmacist instead of a GP.
    It saves the patient the hassle of waiting for an appointment or call back from the GP for a prescription of antibiotics. This would also save the NHS the cost and time of a GP testing and prescribing for a UTI. Many who have suffered a UTI before know and understand the symptoms but can end up painfully waiting to be treated. Balancing work, family commitments and your health can be difficult and is made more difficult when worrying about missing the call back from the GP or making sure you get your prescription into the pharmacy before closing. A UTI can be very debilitating and this could be dramatically improved by allowing patients antibiotic prescription treatment over the counter.

  • Jess Lawson - Colourful Bench
    Jess Lawson from Wolfreton school, Willerby went on a school trip and never came home, she was 12 years old at the time. The Kirkella and Westella Parish Council have turned down a request for a colourful bench to be placed on the corner of School Lane opposite St. Andrews School in Kirkella for reasons as stated by Margaret Raymond, "It may make it look like Disney land" I say why not? Jess was colourful and no one should ever wave goodbye to their child and not see them again. The existing bench is broken to add insult to injury. ! Please add your support and let's get the family what they deserve. Thank you.

  • Introduce a Carbon tax to combat climate change
    This may be our last chance to stop climate change. If the average temperature rises by 2°C then coral reefs will die. Not only are these natural phenomenons beautiful and unique, coral reef plants and the animals that inhabit them are important sources of new medicines that are being developed to treat cancer, arthritis, Alzheimer's disease, heart disease, and other diseases due to their amazing biochemistry. Also, if the Greenland ice cap melts completely, as it is already starting too, then the fresh water might completely stop the Gulf Stream, which is a natural ocean current that keeps us warm. If the Gulf Stream stops then precipitation will fall as snow instead of rain, and over time could lead to the UK's climate becoming more like that of eastern Russia during winter.

  • Blame Culture
    Another example of the deficiencies of the regulator essentially shifting blame and their own shortcoming on to these practitioners who very bravely risked their own lives in treating ebola patients. These wonderful nurses and human beings should be honoured and deeply respected not persecuted, its an absolute disgrace. Its about time this injustice was recognised and put right please speak up on their behalf
