Nhs Lavishes £2500 On Xmas Tree For Staff Building


Recommended Posts

YOU CAN RENT A REAL CHRISTMAS TREE FOR A FRACTION OF THE PRICE.

RENTING IS NOT DEAD MONEY.

WHY SPEND £2500 ON A DEPRECIATING ASSET?

WHEN CHRISTMAS TREES GO UP, THEY HAVE TO COME DOWN IN JANUARY.

When I worked in one city - the Christmas decorations/lights were left up nearly 8 months a year to cater for different religion 'festivals' (if you even brought the subject up, the racist and other cards were immediately thrown at you, amongst alot of tutting!)

So I suppose decorations could become mucky and a hazard set up in a hospital ward for 8 months a year!

Don't forget the special training the staff had to have with the "facilitator" in order put on the decorations <£5000> [chosen specially for the 2009 year by Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen <cost £3000>] on the tree. They also had to have a 3 week team bonding session involving building a raft out of sticks, in the Lake district prior to this training to ensure everyone was prepared back in September <£7500>.

When the tree is up, everyone that is signed off, may put on the decorations in turn, ready for the Lighting evening. Whoops, must check everyone's health and safety certificates have not expired, or it's back to step one!!

Where's me clipboard? <£20>

And don't forget the 5000 leaflets and posters telling everyone in the building, as the NHS is going green, this years Christmas tree lights are energy efficient LEDs instead of the old fashioned ones, thus reducing our carbon footprint. The lights this year will reduce carbon production by 0.05 tons. Did you know that?

NHS spends thousands on climate change handbook

The NHS has spent thousands of pounds on a booklet that tells nurses to put pot plants in patients' rooms to counter climate change.

It works like this, and not just the NHS>

You are careful spending your own money.

You are less careful spending someone else's money from a person you know.

You are careless when spending someone else's money from people you will never know personally, or never will hold you to account directly.

Its worse than this.

If you are spending your own money on something for yourself you would make sure you get the best quality at the best price.

If you are spending your own money on something for someone else you don't give a sh1t about quality but at least it will be cheap

If you are spending someone else money on yourself you don't give a sh1t about how much it costs but at least you get the best quality

If you are spending someone elses money on someone else you don't give a sh1t about getting it cheap or getting good quality. This is unfortunately the situation with government procurements.
