Critics say the HSE needs to worry about services in the rest of the country and not in the capital.Representatives for the health authority and paramedics went before an Oireachtas Health Committee earlier this week after it emerged that crucial response targets were being missed.And chairman of the Irish Fire and Emergency Services Association John Kidd says people living outside Dublin are the most at risk.”What we are calling for is a national fire and ambulance service – and if the government would listen to us, we’d save people’s lives, save time and save the exchequer money” he said.”One person a month seems to be losing his life down the country – the review should be held down in the country areas, not actually in Dublin”.”Dublin has the second-highest rate in the world of a cardiac arrest” he added.

Lees Foods has reached a settlement with the former directors and shareholders of Patisserie UK, which will see the Coatbridge-based firm receive approximately £225,000.In June this year Lees announced it would be taking legal action against the people from whom it bought Patisserie UK – a specialist bakery business that went into administration in March 2009 under Lees’ ownership. Lees, which owns the Lees of Scotland and Waverley Bakery businesses, purchased Patisserie UK’s holding company Rock Cake in December 2007 from its directors, who had set up the company in a management buy-out from Enterprise Foods in February 2006. However, anticipated sales did not materialise as forecast, leading to a dispute between Lees and Patisserie UK’s former directors and shareholders.Patisserie UK was later placed in administration after its major customer Costa Coffee, which accounted for 75% of its sales, switched to another supplier.Following a “constructive process of discussion” a settlement was reached, with no admission of liability on either side, announced Lees. The £225,000 sum will be made up of £125,000 in cash and all of the 65,000 Lees ordinary shares issued to the shareholders of Patisserie UK as part of the consideration for the acquisition. The shares have a market value of approximately £100,000.
Greggs is to launch a new format store, its take on a local baker, British Baker can reveal.The development will be the retailer’s second new concept store in as many months and will become the third store format for Greggs, concentrating on the firm’s bakery heritage. The move follows the recent launch into the coffee shop market, with Greggs Moment in Newcastle.The as yet-unnamed concept will, according to the company’s chief executive Ken McMeikan, have a greater emphasis on bread and products to take home, while still stocking some of the savouries that its food-to-go stores have become famous for. However, it is not known at this stage whether the new-format sites will feature in-store bakeries or be supplied by Greggs’ chain of central bakeries.In an exclusive interview with the boss of the bakery chain (page 18), McMeikan, who is HRH Prince of Wales Ambassador for the North told British Baker: “We are going to be looking next at a local bakery format. And that would look at the traditional product range you would expect to get from a baker, so there will be a much greater emphasis on bread and rolls and a much greater emphasis on sweet and confectionery, while still having some of the savouries and the sandwiches you would expect from food-on-the-go.”He added: “We really wanted to ask what is the range today that customers would want. Without giving away what that would be, we will be launching somewhere around the country next year.”Greggs delivered a resilient performance in the third quarter of 2011, with total sales growth of 5.4% and like-for-like sales growth of 0.8% for the 13 weeks to 1 October 2011.
