<b>Thursday 16 October:</b> Health services are poor, MOSI in Icelandic crisis and Rooney on a winning streak

Published on October 16th 2008.

MANCHESTER HEALTH SERVICES have been given 'weak' ratings by the Healthcare Commission. The report raised concerns over patients having to wait over two days for GP appointments. The report also said that some hospitals aren't doing enough to tackle MRSA.

THE MUSEUM OF SCIENCE AND INDUSTRY (MOSI) is reportedly at risk of being the latest victim of the Icelandic banking crisis. We reported yesterday how Manchester Metropolitan University and the University of Manchester have invested around £15m in a crashed Icelandic bank. Now it has come to light that MOSI had £900,000 worth of saving invested.

MORE BBC TV SHOWS are set to move out of London as part of the transition to Media City in Salford. Crimewatch will move to Cardiff, The Weakest Link to Scotland along with Question Time, Newsnight Review and the Saturday Lottery show. The BBC say this is part of a plan to build seven in-house production centres of excellence in Salford, Bristol, Birmingham, Cardiff, Glasgow and Belfast, as well as London.

WAYNE ROONEY hopes to continue his goalscoring hot streak when he returns to club action for United this weekend. He told manutd.com: “Goals are going in for me and I'm really pleased. I work every day on my finishing and it's going well. You can always improve, there are weaknesses there I can improve on. I've worked a lot on my finishing and it's starting to pay off on the pitch now which I'm happy about.”
