I wonder where the missing £13,000,000 went at @gloshospitals ? Definitely wasn't due to sick pay for me this time.
@BBCGlos @gloshospitals @BBCNews what a financial disaster!! Was no one doing the sums?
Emergency loan for @gloshospitals. Some1 needs 2 be held to account. Why has this been allowed 2 happen? Bank's get bailed out why not nhs?
@gloshospitals I heard Deborah Lee on the news, sensible approach after she uncovered the financial position, & find her a good leader, Bren
@itvwestcountry @gloshospitals @UKIPStroud @ukipgloucester Is this the real reason Stroud minor injuries unit faces closure? #UKIP.
What a disgrace @gloshospitals - a distinct lack of #CorporateGovernance - perhaps commercial #PrivateSector #NEDs would help you!! Do call!

No faults with the hospital but parking is so expensive �
Many thanks to the lovely nurse who looked after me today on my visit to Opthalmology in the Orchard Centre....I was back home by 2.30.
As a dial-a-ride driver I'm there a lot & the staff do a great job.
That is quite a deficit
