Work started on life-size Lancaster Bomber on Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire border

Work has started to build a life-size model of a Lancaster Bomber on the Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire border which campaigners hope will become a national landmark rivalling the Angel of the North. The steel replica of the iconic bomber will be built on high ground off the A46 at Norton Disney, in Lincolnshire, in a spot campaigners say will be seen by 34,000 motorists each day. Lincolnshire is known as “bomber county” because of the number of military airfields it had during the Second World War.

Lincoln hospital trialling new telephone clinics

Patients in Lincoln are being given the opportunity to consult with hospital staff on the phone for the first time. The rheumatology department at Lincoln County Hospital is providing telephone clinics for eligible patients. Patients are selected based on their condition being stable, them not suffering from any recent flare ups and there not being any recent changes to their medication. More complicated patients will continue to be seen in a traditional face to face clinic. The telephone clinics are useful for patients, particularly those who have no means of transport or live far away from the hospital. Being in a rural area public transport can be difficult, but by having a telephone appointment patients no longer have to rely on friends, family or a taxi service to help them travel to the hospital.
