You recently reported how out-of-hours staff cuts in Lanarkshire meant cancer patients were having to wait longer for pain relief (August 3).
What people may not know is that it is not only the overnight teams these changes will affect but also the evening nursing teams.
From next month, the Clydesdale team will be moved from Lanark to Udston Hospital, Hamilton, but will still maintain visits within the Clydesdale area.
This proposed plan is supposed to be "cost effective" and still promote patient care.
How is this possible, if staff have to travel from Udston to Law, Carluke, Lanark, Forth, Biggar, Abington, Douglas, Lesmahagow, Leadhills and Crawford all in space of four hours?

So Hollywood star Brad Pitt was "touched" by people turning up to see him filming in Glasgow.
It seems to me he hardly bothered with fans during filming.
Yes, he met a football team and had a picture taken with a girl, but for the most part people were left disappointed at not seeing him.
Surely he could have spent a few minutes on a George Square walkabout.

I don't think I'll be going to Seattle in the US if the police series The Killing is anything to go by.
Not one episode during the last 10 weeks has been without thunder storms and torrential downpours. Even the actors go about with rain-soaked clothes.
Saying that, I'm still enjoying it. I thought I'd worked out who dunnit, but was proved wrong!

Just the ticket
Overheard on a bus to Gourock: one lady of advancing years said to another: "If they asked whether I would rather keep my free bus pass or a pension increase, I would opt for keeping the pass.
It's what keeps me active, gets me travelling and saves a lot of money".
It just shows what imaginative initiatives can do.
