‘The Stratford Upon Avon & Midland Junction Railway’ (or S.M.J.) was a small independent railway company which ran a line across the empty, untouched centre of England. It visited the counties of Northamptonshire, Warwickshire, Oxfordshire and a little of Buckinghamshire, only existing as the SMJ from 1909 to 1923. In 1923 the S.M.J.became a minor arm of the London Midland and Scottish (L.M.S.), then in 1948 'British Railways'

Royal College of Nursing urges Government to lower additional charges for International Nurses

The recent comment by the Royal College of Nursing regarding Healthcare surcharges being levied on nurses from overseas is both well measured and correct. Under current immigration policy, people who come to work in the UK from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) must pay a healthcare surcharge that has left some nurses facing bills of several thousand pounds. The current fee of £200 per family member per year is about to be doubled to £400 and that means a £1600 bill for a family of 4 per year. This fee is being charged against a backdrop of the most
