New service providing ’vital support’ for dementia patients launches in Waveney
A new specialist service to support dementia patients has been launched in Waveney.
Dementia Together has been jointly commissioned by NHS Great Yarmouth and Waveney Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and Suffolk County Council.
The service – which launched on Saturday – is available through a single free-phone number and is aimed at helping people at all stages of the illness – from those dealing with a new diagnosis to long-standing patients nearing the end of their life.
It is hoped the service will provide clearer information about the illness, including help from trained advisors, access to community-based support groups and chats with experts when needed.
Could Radio 1 Roadshow return to Norfolk?
It used to be the biggest thing to hit the seaside all summer – and now it’s set to hit the road again.
Tony Miles, better known as Smiley Miley ran the Radio 1 Road-show for more than 20 years and is hoping to bring it back to Norfolk.
The Bristol-based promoter has bought the Radio 1 65ft show rig which is currently being refurbished and when the work is complete, he plans to tour the UK as Not The Radio 1 Roadshow.
The show was a summer tradition which spanned three decades, mixing musical A-listers with competitions, banter and practical jokes.
In its heyday, it drew thousands to King’s Lynn, Hunstanton and Great Yarmouth before the BBC replaced it with a series of one-day festivals in 2000.
Mr Miles said he hoped to return to his old coastal stamping grounds.

Wheelchair tennis star, Alfie Hewett, who has been stranded in Chicago for almost 24 hours was due to arrive in New York last night ahead of the US Open.

Alfie was forced to sleep on the airport floor and had to cancel his practice and scheduled media interviews.
