Patients consulted on charges for walking sticks and knee braces by CCG


@Anonymous | GP Partner | 16 April 2014 5:49pm I have always paid for every single piece of equipment I've needed - walking sticks, crutches, manual wheelchairs, powerchairs, nebulisers - the list goes one. I will not - absolutely not - pay for the execrable food inflicted on patients in my local hospital. I spent 10 weeks there last year, in three sessions, and saw the food go from adequate portions of very decent food, prepared in-house, to tiny, repellent, portions of outsourced dog food. And in one week, 14 of my pre-ordered meals - that's all of them - failed to arrive at all. Pay for this? They should pay me.
