Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Trust - which runs Whitworth Hospital and others - has been named one of the top healthcare organisations in the country to work for.

Mike Ashworth, chairman of the partnership’s managing group, said: “Children learn about road safety at primary school - but once they get to secondary school they are more likely to be faced with distractions that stop them giving the road their full attention.

Motorists are being reminded about the importance of removing valuables from their vehicles following police patrols at the Chatsworth County Fair on Saturday, August 30.

PC Ian Hyde from the Bakewell Safer Neighbourhood Team said: “We carried out patrols throughout the day as part of our auto crime initiative and noticed a number of vehicles with valuables, such as sat-navs, left on display.

“Thieves are opportunists, so don’t make your vehicle appealing to them. Before leaving your vehicle unattended, ensure that it is properly secure and that any valuables are taken with you or left completely out of view.”

Other advice includes parking in well-lit, overlooked areas and removing any visible marks such as sat nav holder rings to deter a criminal.
