06.01.22 – 999 Critical Condition, 2021 Winter Mini Challenge, Covid Booster, New Vic Theatre

Written by on 6 January 2022

Award-winning documentary ‘999:Critical Condition’, which takes an up-close look at the moments when patients come through those hospital doors, is to return to television screens tonight.

The third series of Channel 5’s critically-acclaimed series, filmed exclusively at the Royal Stoke University Hospital, will once again show the reality of critical care in the vital first minutes after a patient arrives in a life threatening condition as well as urgent and emergency surgical care.



The 2021 Winter Mini Challenge, run by The Reading Agency in partnership with the world wide fund for nature, has been well under way since December, but it is not too late for children to get involved! This fun event runs until the 16 January.

More information on the Challenge and how to get involved can be found at so follow the link to start the Challenge!  And don’t forget … your local library has loads of books to choose from!



Local residents are being encouraged by Staffordshire County Council to make getting the covid booster their New Year’s resolution.

All adults are now eligible for their booster dose of the vaccine. The booster provides longer-term protection against getting seriously ill from COVID-19. You can book online or go to a walk-in vaccination site.

There are also a range of pop-up clinics happening across Staffordshire where anyone aged 12 or over can get a jab without booking an appointment – dates and times can be found on the Staffordshire County Council Website


Do you live within easy walking distance of the New Vic Theatre?  Do you have a spare, comfortable and furnished room and would you be willing to share other facilities in your house?
