One wonders why the NHS is in such a bad financial state with all the money poured into it.
Then a headline in the local newspaper tells us that over the last few months over thirty wheel-chairs have been stolen! They are provided within the foyer of the hospital to help those with mobility problems get to a car. So it would appear that those friends or relations who have come to collect the patient feel that it is their in-alienable right to purloin the said wheel-chair, fold it up and take it to the patient’s home!
Did no-one ever forsee this, or did they not twig very quickly what was happening? It is possible to either modify these fold-away units or provide ones which are ‘fixed’.
Do those who stole the chairs not realise that replacement of stolen units is depriving other departments of funding.
And we thought that this only happened with supermarket trolleys! I suppose it’s just as well that they are not motorised!
