It comes after Andrew Eade, leader of the Conservative opposition on Telford & Wrekin Council, said one option to be considered should be building a specialist county centre for emergency care. His suggestion followed a fact-finding visit by Councillor Eade to a similar specialist centre in Cramlington, Northumberland.
The figures from NHS Digital show 120 walked away last year in the county, while only 103 joined. In England, more than 33,000 walked away last year – with the number of leavers surpassing the number of those joining the workforce by 3,000. The Royal College of Nursing (RCN) is urging ministers to act. Shropshire's hospitals are training associate nurses to fill the gaps, but West Midlands director at the RCN, Mike Adams, said the figures were "worrying".
Lush in Telford Shopping Centre closed to make way for the new Fashion Quarter development. The online petition, which has been launched by Francesca Tittensor from Telford, is calling on Telford Town Centre Management to find a suitable part of the town centre so it can reopen. A statement on Lush Telford's Facebook page announced the closure saying it was due to development work within the shopping centre and Lush being unable to find a suitable new location.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
