My local Hospital is turning into a bloody Bazaar. Well when I say local, I mean the one I now have to travel to seeing as my real local hospital (Haslar) is being shut down. Recently I took my little boy (Freddie) to Queen Alexandra's hospital in Cosham (Portsmouth) to have an eye exam. He had to have eye drops in, so we were sent away for half an hour to allow his pupils to dilate. Thinking we would pass the time over a coffee, the wife and I headed over to the canteen, and there in the passageway outside the canteen was what could only be described as a market stall.
I know what you are thinking, a couple of old ladies selling second hand books and knitted dolls. Well unfortunately this was nothing like that. What this was, was a middle aged Asian looking guy selling cheap watches at £6 a pop. What the bloody hell is going on? Is my local hospital so skint that they have to rent out hospital corridors to market traders. Which idiot on the trust board thought this was a good way to raise revenue? Honestly it's like we're turning into some bloody third world country.
