£3 million for Safer Streets in Notts

Eastwood Safer Streets

Eastwood have been included in plans to make people safe and feel safer on the streets of Nottinghamshire as part of a £3 million boost.

The Safer Streets funding will pay for a range of crime prevention measures, including wardens who will patrol the streets, specialist burglary reduction officers, a greater CCTV camera network, better street lighting and training for people working in town centres at night-time to help them keep women and girls safe.

Nottinghamshire’s Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner submitted a total of four successful funding bids to the Home Office, each for £750,000, after working with partners, for projects across Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.

Health and Care System in Nottingham: Critical incident

critical care

Earlier this week the health and care system in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire declared a critical incident due to continued and unprecedented demand for its services.

Although they have seen some reductions in pressure, the overall demand remains at such a level that the critical incident response will be continued, especially as we head into the weekend.  

You can help by:

  • Only calling 999 or attending A&E departments for serious accidents and for genuine emergencies
  • Visit NHS 111or call NHS 111 for advice on how to get the care you need at any time of day or night
  • Urgent treatment centres, like the one on London Road Nottingham can help you get the care you need for dealing with the most common issues that people attend emergency departments for such as burns and sprains
