The NHS, like the rest of the Public Sector, is perfectly happy to cut important services, whilst throwing away money on any nonsense daft enough to entertain senior managers over morning coffee.
Here's the latest example- a talking plate which, for a mere £1500 it will tell chubbers to stop eating so fast.
Great. Those of you who might require Physio for a bad back will just have to wait another month.
I contacted the NHS offering to record a tape of my own cheery admonishments such as: "Step away from the plate" and "Slow down you fat lump, it'll still be there in a few moments time!" which could be played as background music at mealtimes for about £1495 less, but I only received an 'out of office' reply saying that their working hours were 9.30 am to 2.30pm. (It was just before Noon at the time.)
