Hip op praise for hospital
BASILDON Hospital has been praised for the way it cares for patients needing hip operations. 
An in-depth report, published by the Royal College of Surgeons, has found the hospital's 'shared care' approach to dealing with hip fracture patients, has resulted in fewer patients dying as a result of the operation. 
The approach sees different medics going together on ward rounds to help assess patients and put them at ease.

Army amputee takes the plunge for charity
A TRIPLE amputee was among 60 adrenaline seekers who conducted a parachute jump over Wiltshire to raise money for soldiers, former soldiers and their families. 
Corporal Andy Reid, from 3rd Battalion The Yorkshire Regiment, suffered severe injuries from an improvised device while serving in Afghanistan last autumn.  
As a result of the explosion he lost both legs and his right arm. He is receiving ongoing treatment for his left arm, which was also damaged and is now fitted with a metal plate.
