How is this saving cash?

First published in Letters

I WOULD like to inform you that Penhow Ward in St Woolos Hospital has re-opened three times since July, most recently on June 14. Also: explain how saving money means employing agency workers and banking staff.

Is this saving money? They are working 12-hour shifts because our nurses are being displaced. The present staff on Ruppera Ward are over-worked on a very difficult ward. Obviously, Mr Sainsbury doesn’t visit the hospital. Let us hope he doesn’t need the care when he gets older.
