Seafront Nurses

26 July 2010
’s seafront nurses on hand for holidaymakers

People visiting Scarborough this summer will be able to get medical attention from nurses stationed on the seafront should they need it.

A team of seven nurses drawn from local NHS services will be taking it in turns to man a station at Scarborough’s West Pier from 10am until 5pm, seven days a week during the school summer holiday period (26 July to 3 September 2010).

They will be on hand to examine and treat people for minor injuries (such as cuts, sprains, sunburn etc.) or refer them onto more appropriate services, such as Scarborough’s GP drop in service Castle Health Centre, or Scarborough Hospital for more serious problems.

Note: For this one we were commissioned by Nursing Times.

Opera Stars at Open Air Theatre - Scarborough

Scarborough's new Open Air Theatre Opening Gala Performance by JOSE CARRERAS AND DAME KIRI TE KANAWA.

Yorkshire Opera fans were truly honoured to be able to see these two world famous acts, and the night was something I will never forget.

I am not an opera fan per se, but they are simply fantastic singers and with a great orchestra behind them and the most beautiful of locations and great weather the night was simply unforgettable.

Amputee loses benefit

EXCLUSIVE: by Judith Broadbent. Daily Mirror 23rd July 2010.

I photographed the plight of Bridlington War veteran Aron Shelton who was lost his benefits just because he was honest and confirmed on a form that he could walk 400 meters.

Private Aron Shelton, 26, from Bridlington, East Yorkshire, had his left leg amputated in December 2008 after he was injured in an explosion in Helmand province, Afghanistan only just one year earlier.
