Night Gunfire at Keevil Airport 24th April

You may already be aware that a Major Exercise is due to begin at Keevil Airfield on the 16/17th April.  It will run through until the 5th May. There has been a request from those running the exercise to permit the firing of blank ammunition on the 24th April at approximately 8pm for an hour or so depending on the exercise scenario. The back up day will be the 25th at similar times. Wiltshire Police  are aware of this and this should already have filtered down to the local crime officer.  This is a rare occurrence on the airfield and so they are very keen that they don’t flood 101 or 999 with unnecessary calls.  So please take note of this date.

Patient transport survey: 16 October – 10 November 2017

Clinical Commissioning Groups across the South West are seeking views from patients on how they can provide fair access to NHS-funded non-emergency transport.

The survey is open from Monday 16 October – Friday 10 November 2017.

The aim of the survey is to help inform the development of a consistent approach to eligibility for NHS-funded patient transport. Patient transport is a non-emergency service offered to people who cannot get to their hospital appointments because their health condition impacts on their ability to use routine transport (cars/trains/buses/taxis/wheelchair taxis).

National eligibility criteria were set in 2007, however these have been subject to variation in local interpretation, agreed exclusions and the way that eligibility is applied. The aim of the Clinical Commissioning Groups is to ensure that NHS-funded non-emergency patient transport is provided in a fair way for all those who need help getting to hospital appointments.
