Mid­wife gets your vote

Wishaw Press - - YOUR VIEWS -

Last week we re­ported that Wishaw Hospi­tal mid­wife Maureen Mcsherry had been short­listed as a fi­nal­ist for the Mid­wife Award at the Scot­tish Health Awards 2018. Our read­ers were quick to back Maureen ahead of the cer­e­mony on Novem­ber 1. Amaz­ing! You de­serve this Maureen.

Couldn’t thank you enough for your care. Re­becca Long­mire-mcguire Good luck. She de­liv­ered my two youngest girls and was a bril­liant mid­wife. Gail Al­lan Good luck Maureen. You de­serve it for all your hard work. Alice Ewing Our front page last Wed­nes­day re­ported on a short­age of flu jabs across Wishaw. We re­ceived a num­ber of com­ments from res­i­dents who have also been af­fected by the short­age. We have been call­ing the surgery for a month for the kids vac­cine and it is still not in. Kirtsy Fal­lan My son got his let­ter at the end of Septem­ber to make an ap­point­ment for the flu nasal spray.

I con­tacted Dr Clarks Surgery at the start of Oc­to­ber who seemed an­noyed the let­ters had al­ready been sent went they never had the nasal spray avail­able.

I was told to phone back at the end of Oc­to­ber.

Whilst on the phone this morn­ing I was told it was now ex­pected in Thewishaw Press have kicked off a fan­tas­tic new fea­ture to find our read­ers’dig­i­tal pic­ture of the week.

We have teamed up with Mor­risons in Kirk Road who will pro­vide a FREE fam­ily meal for four (two adults and two chil­dren) at their cafe for ev­ery read­ers’dig­i­tal pic­ture of the week that we print in our news­pa­per.

It can be pho­to­graph, selfie or im­age that you or your chil­dren have taken on a dig­i­tal cam­era, ipad, or smart­phone.

We are look­ing for ei­ther a pic­ture that you have taken in thewishaw area or per­haps a selfie of your fam­ily while you were on hol­i­day at home or abroad, or Novem­ber. Kay Moots I got a let­ter telling me to ar­range it.

When I called they told me the vac­cine isn’t in yet and won’t be un­til Novem­ber! April Lees chil­dren’s draw­ing on an ipad.

We would also like pic­tures of your spe­cial oc­ca­sions, such as wed­ding an­niver­saries, chil­dren’s birthday par­ties, re­tire­ments dos, fam­ily cel­e­bra­tions, party pic­tures, club or group pic­tures, or any other big day or char­ity event.

Great to see you go from strength to strength. Yvonne Fin­layson This is a great com­pany with fab prod­ucts.

It’s great to see them grow­ing and suc­ceed­ing. Fiona Sharkey Shotts MSP Neil Gray blasted Uni­ver­sal Credit as “caus­ing mis­ery for mil­lions” with food­bank use in the area soar­ing. I would love to see some MPS made to live on Uni­ver­sal Credit for a few weeks.
