This expansion will not only give us a dedicated presence in this region of the country enabling us to provide an even more efficient and speedy service, it has also allowed Routes to create two new job vacancies as we seek to increase our Central Services and Accounts staffing.
Latest life-extending cancer drug 'rationed by postcode': Dozens of hospitals refuse to hand out treatments
Hospitals are denying patients the latest life-extending cancer drugs, a report reveals.
Dozens of trusts are failing to hand out treatments for bowel, ovarian, lung and brain cancer that have been approved by the NHS watchdog NICE. Some of these drugs have been shown to boost survival rates by a quarter while others have extended the lives of terminally-ill patients by over a year.
The report - commissioned by the Department of Health - also reveals that many hospitals are failing to prescribe the latest treatments for heart attacks, asthma, multiple sclerosis, arthritis and Crohn’s Disease.
In fact some of the drugs were approved for use by NICE more than seven years ago.

Adults with disabilities in England are being deprived of basic care and support and are at risk of being forgotten in the wider reform of the social care system, campaigners say.
Much of the focus on care has been centred around the crisis facing the elderly.
But a coalition of charities has warned people with disabilities under the age of 65 are being neglected too. They said the squeeze on council care meant many were already missing out.
And the groups, including Mencap, Scope, the National Autistic Society, Leonard Cheshire Disability and Sense, warned the situation could deteriorate under the forthcoming reform of the system.
Ministers are soon expected to announce a cap will be placed on the costs people face for care.

Yvonne Barlow, Routes Branch Manager in Sale, has kindly donated books and clothes to Guni Secondary School in Zimbabwe.
Below is an extract from the thank you received from the Chairman of the school.
"The donation came at the right time when we, through the Guni Old Students Association, are pushing for a revamp of the system at the schools, seeking to improve performance in both curricular and extracurricular activities. The current state of the schools and the educational system needs review and we are engaging all stakeholders for support. For the Primary school, reconstruction in required (see attached photos), while at the secondary school, it is a matter of adding educational resources and reviewing the system. We envisage transforming Guni Schools into model schools, centres of excellence in core and non-core curricular activities, and schools which upholds highest levels of discipline, integrity and professionalism. To achieve this, involvement of the community, former students, and other interested stakeholders is of paramount importance. As such, we are actively pushing for increased and committed participation of these stakeholders in the development of the school. We are striving to inculcate a sense of social responsibility in the former students so that they come on board to assist the schools and the community at large with similar if not better donations.

Lastly, kindly express our gratitude to the people who enabled this donation to be a reality success. Special mention goes to Yvonne Barlow who provided some of the books and Mr Magada who assisted with the logistical arrangements for shipment of the books. Indeed, these are our partners and true Friends of Guni Schools!!! We would be glad to receive more donations from you."
