What we did – 18 October 2017

Today’s hero is Wadley — learning IT and sharing what he already knows a lot about. Wadley is a genius in the kitchen — fed everybody with his own Saltfish-&-Ackee recipe (plus yellow yam, plantain, and dasheen).

Also special thanks to volunteers Cathy and Gemma from Bernstein Alliance, via Benefacto – and our regular volunteers Charlie, Derek and Michael.

BBC | NHS Tracker: Check key targets in your area

Use our tracker to check whether your local services are meeting strict waiting-time targets for cancer, routine operations and A&E.

The NHS is under unprecedented pressure. Rising numbers of patients need hospital care – whether in an accident and emergency department, for cancer treatment or for planned operations and care, such as knee and hip replacements.

For each there are strict targets local services are expected to meet across the UK. But what are the chances of being seen in time where you live? Use the interactive tracker to find out.
