We hear things retrospectively when we have understood them - Marcel Proust
Sadly this is standard practice these days; a similar situation at a large Edinburgh hospital arose from the use of a carefully designed planning formula that basically allowed a parking space for each consultant and manager and assumed that all nursing staff and patients would take the bus.Throw in a few remarks about 'sustainability' and 'carbon footprints' to make it look good and - hey presto! - you have a hospital where few nurses can be persuaded to face the night buses or a long walk down empty dark streets to work a night shift.The resulting bill for agency nurses to fill the gaps, combined with a vast number of missed appointments due to late buses or a lack of parking, has, according to local rumour, formed a large proportion of the hospital budget ever since.
M - odd isn't it? Supermarkets manage to get it right.
Oh for fucks sake, why the surprise and astonishment, it's not their money that's being pissed up against the wall, is it?
Anon - what surprise and astonishment?
I wonder if they offer brain transplants as part of their service?
DD - the problem is finding suitable donors.
