I pay tribute to the work of the Princess Royal League of Friends. It has done an excellent job within the hospital in raising significant amounts of money and providing services over a number of years.

The specific issue must be resolved by the League of Friends, the hospital itself and the primary care trust to ensure that there is sufficient revenue to support the use of the capital equipment. The problem should be resolved at a local level.

This is not right. It cannot and will not be sorted at local level, the only thing that can be is the League of Friends now being charged rent.

I agree! The Trust has no clue about how to run the hospital. They should be sacked and the management taken over by the League of Friends and a team of volunteers.

After all, The LOF have never yet made a loss...
