"Illegally Copied DVD's Being Sold in Outpatients"

About: King George Hospital

While waiting for an appointment with my father on 28th Jan a man appeared with bags of what turned out to be knocked-off DVD's. He greeted the receptionist by name & she promptly summoned her colleagues by yelling or by phone. Nurses were appearing from everywhere (all very familiar with this man) and for a good 15 minutes sorted through all the goods and then happily handed over cash for films even though they were told some had Chinese subtitles! I am disgusted that this took place so openly right in front of patients and even more disgusted that it took place while the staff are being paid to work. This is obviously a regular arrangement and I think it should be stopped immediately.
