Look Out for suspicious visitors

There were 2 people wandering purposefully behind the Grove and in front, studying the area and looking over hedges into gardens. They came from the direction of Turners lane area.

Don’t know if this is a lead to any criminal activity.

Be vigilant and lock your homes and valuables.

There have been many reports of people taking stuff from gardens and properties in Ross and loading it into white vans. The police have a list of registration numbers of such vans. If anyone sees this kind of thing they should contact the police.

Minor Injuries unit reopened in Ross

County’s Minor Injury Units to re-open on Monday, February 12

The Minor Injury Units at Ross-on-Wye and Leominster Community Hospitals are to reopen on Monday, February 12.

Wye Valley NHS Trust temporarily closed the units in December to allow the Trust to redeploy experienced staff in the Emergency Department at the County Hospital which was under extreme winter pressure.

“We’ve seen a decline in the number of patients with minor injuries attending the Emergency Department which has allowed us to reopen the MIUs,” said Jon Barnes, chief operating officer at the Trust.

“The safety and welfare of patients is the Trust’s priority. We have a duty to ensure we provide safe clinical care for our most vulnerable patients and the temporary closures allowed us to redeploy experienced emergency nurse practitioners to provide enhanced clinical support where it was most needed.”

The temporary closures are not affecting other activities at the community hospitals – all other services at Ross-on-Wye and Leominster Community Hospitals continue to operate as usual.
