Ipswich Hospital’s emergency department is seeing an extra 60 patients a day compared to four years ago, but could we reduce this by Making the Right Call?
Hundreds of dementia sufferers in west Suffolk are missing out on specialist care and treatment because the condition is not being diagnosed early enough, according to the charity Alzheimer’s Research UK.
To address this, West Suffolk Hospital is working to improve staff training and ensure that they offer those suffering from the condition a safe and comfortable environment. The EADT, and its sister Mercury titles, has teamed up with the hospital to raise £25,000 to further support patients.
From setting up Afghanistan heroes in their own homes, to providing grab rails and level access showers for disabled veterans and days out for the children of serving soldiers, the cause is dedicated to helping those from Suffolk and north Essex who have served their country.
The EADT launched the Stop The Pylons campaign to oppose plans for a line of gigantic power pylons across the beautiful south Suffolk countryside.
National Grid was looking to link an extra set of cables between its substation in Bramford, near Ipswich, and a power junction in Twinstead, near Sudbury.
The campaign is called Let’s Get Connected – and it aims to do exactly what the title says. To highlight the blackspots in our region and make mobile phone network providers aware of the demand for more transmitters.
Sign our petition and support the cause so we can help you get connected.
As the voice of our readers, the EADT is constantly campaigning for improved broadband across the county. Over the past two years we have been putting pressure on the council to up their fight and proving to the communications industry that there is demand for superfast broadband in Suffolk. Already, parts of the county have been upgraded but there is still a long way to go before Suffolk catches up with other parts of country.
The East Anglian Daily Times launched the Bypass 4 the Villages campaign to end decades of traffic misery for four Suffolk villages on the busy A12.
We are calling for the long-awaited and much-needed A12 four villages bypass – from Wickham Market to the Friday Street junction at Benhall – to finally get the go-ahead.
