Don't privatise our hospital cafes

I agree wholeheartedly with Dr Jacky Woolcock's comments regarding Mr David Jones' idea to commercialise the cafes at our three hospitals.

In the recent past, I have been a volunteer car ambulance driver and know what wonderful work and fund raising these mostly volunteers do for the hospital.

They have personally supplied lots of equipment for the hospitals, worth thousands of pounds.

If this goes out to invited commercial organisations, for sure they will keep the profits and the hospitals and patients will lose out.

With the NHS in dire straights for money, I am horrified that Mr Jones would like to deprive us of the good service and funds which the Friends raise for the living.
