HOSPI­TAL gets £900k fund­ing boost for A&E. Mac­cles­field Hospi­tal will use the cash to stream pa­tients to pri­mary or emer­gency ser­vices (Ex­press July 6) Val Fearon: Put a few more noughts in and it might make a dif­fer­ence! Stephen Boyle: What’s this got to do with the MP, he just voted to keep pay cap! Ryan A Adams: Why is the money for administration and not for in­creas­ing ca­pac­ity or ser­vices? It works out less than £75,000 a month. That’s not a lot with re­gards to the health ser­vices. But it is a lot just for some­one to tell you to go to A&E or pri­mary care. Rob Ver­non: To­tally in­ad­e­quate. What the govern­ment has done is seen the progress Labour made in the Gen­eral Elec­tion in Mac­cles­field and thrown us some scraps to make them look like they’re do­ing some­thing. It’s this Con­ser­va­tive govern­ment and Con­ser­va­tive coun­cil cuts that have threat­ened our A&E for years and are now threat­en­ing the Mill­brook Unit. Do they think we are so stupid that throw­ing us a pit­tance will make us think it’s not their fault? Sham­bolic. Gemma Boylin: Where the money com­ing from to pay this I can see the tax pay­ers tax on some­thing will go up again! Brian Norm­ing­ton: It’s about time Mac­cles­field Gen­eral Hospi­tal got some proper fund­ing in­stead of talks about its clo­sure. Jen­nie Gay­wood: Shame there are so many neg­a­tive com­ments, my re­cent ex­pe­ri­ence of A&E and as an in pa­tient at Mac­cles­field Gen­eral has been very good. The staff work so hard un­der dif­fi­cult cir­cum­stances, surely some money is a help? It will never be enough. Per­haps charg­ing all the drunks on Fri­day and Satur­day night in a sep­a­rate unit might help the finance and al­low more time for the hard pressed doc­tors and nurses to at­tend to peo­ple in real need? I am grate­ful that I live near a very good hospi­tal. Let’s stop the moan­ing and sup­port it! Richard Ruane: I guess if you can stop peo­ple go­ing to A&E it prob­a­bly saves money net be­cause there are a lot of lo­cal ser­vices un­der­used when A&E is heav­ing. Adele Langstaff: Good news.

MAC­CLES­FIELD’S Comic con­ven­tion is a smash hit. Hun­dreds of peo­ple flocked to Macc-Pow! (Ex­press June 3) Marc Pow: Thanks again for your cov­er­age and sup­port! Macc-Pow will be back next year for sure! Heidi Reid: Loved it! Got to chat to one of the car­toon art greats and sorted a cou­ple of Christ­mas pressies. Grace Nadin-Sal­ter: Bril­liant Marc! Wish we could have been there. Next year..! Adam Rut­ter: Would have gone if I’d known.

TRAIN thugs jailed for six years. Four men at­tacked a group of men and women at Mac­cles­field train sta­tion, leav­ing two with se­ri­ous in­juries (Ex­press June 3) Christina Webb: I hope these peo­ple will be for­ever banned from the rail­way net­work and from en­ter­ing Mac­cles­field. There is no ex­cuse for their be­hav­iour and I do not think their sen­tences are ad­e­quate. Ev­ery week this pa­per – and no doubt many oth­ers around the coun­try – re­ports court cases of (mostly) men who have been found guilty of vi­o­lence, of­ten within the fam­ily. When are we go­ing to start to deal with this is­sue as a pri­or­ity? Nick Webb: Dis­gust­ing and so are the sen­tences. Ni­cola Duig­nan: This was the night we went to the theatre.

MAC­CLES­FIELD Town man­ager John Askey frus­trated by trans­fer ac­tiv­ity (Ex­press June 6) David West­bury: John’s an­nual task to get the club out of a mess and re­build a team from a few bob and some chew­ing gum found be­hind the sofa. Imag­ine where MTFC would be with­out him? Ste’o James Mac­don­ald: Get Lam­bert back.

EL­DERLY res­i­dents given evic­tion no­tice. Inger­s­ley Court res­i­dents have been threat­ened with evic­tion if they do not leave within two months (Ex­press, July 5). Carol Lovett: Dis­grace­ful. Sharon Pol­lard: If I was 90 I wouldn’t care about “no­tice” it’s dis­gust­ing Samie Turner: This is dis­gust­ing. Clare Bar­rett: That is aw­ful they should’ve helped to get some­where else xx

ROCK­ING horse beau­ti­fully re­stored thanks to com­mu­nity fur­ni­ture project. The horse was re­stored as part of the Cheshire Street­wise fur­ni­ture re­use project in Mac­cles­field. (Ex­press June 21) Karen Moss: What an amaz­ing re­sult! Cheshire Street­wise is such a worth­while ven­ture. San­dra Woodall: Brings back happy mem­o­ries of my child­hood. Spent hours on my rock­ing horse just like that.
