Food, glorious food!

NHS England is banning super-sized chocolate bars from hospital shops, introducing a 250 calorie limit for sweets, a 400 calorie limit for pre-packed sandwiches, and a 5 gram added sugar limit per 100ml of drinks. At this rate it won’t be long before people don’t want to be in hospital anymore.


You can ring my bell

The Surrey Mirror (Thursday 4 September) has a story headlined “Fire crew cut ring off of man’s penis”.
It reports that firefighters were deployed to the local hospital to remove a ring that had got stuck on a man in his 60s. I quote:
“Firefighters spent an hour removing the offending item after selecting the most appropriate tool for the job.”
