Keep it small

CONCERNING hospitals, big may be beautiful, but small is much better and local.

CONCERNING hospitals, big may be beautiful, but small is much better and local. If you are old, weak, ill or pregnant, the last thing you want to do is walk miles of corridors, no matter how well signposted they are.

Small, local hospitals are what most of us want. It doesn’t matter how often they tell us that large specialised units work better - on paper it may be true but not in practice.

Don’t mend it if it isn’t broken.
