"Polite suggestion to manage expendiure..."

About: Hull Royal Infirmary

Whilst neurosurgery admin staff work part time only, causing a delay of 3 to 5 weeks on the simplest of tasks for example typing up of letters dictated by consultants and subsequent distribution to GP's and patients. Yet on all of my cooler month visits, all large external doors and windows are propped open whilst the radiators kick out an obscene amount of heat (tax payers pound notes) into the room and onwards out into the atmosphere. Simple heat management would reduce heating expenditure and waste considerably, easily freeing up funds for full time administration, reducing patient waiting times for letters from over a month at times down to days.
