Visitors are asked not to visit a hospital during meal times.
Visitors and staff are to be asked to avoid interrupting patients during meal times at a Highlands hospital.

NHS Highland said 500-bed Raigmore Hospital in Inverness can have up to 1,000 visitors a day.

Raigmore is now to introduce "protected meal times" so patients can get peace to make sure they eat properly.

Given the less than exemplary record of hospital staff, expect quite a few more deaths from starvation...

Oh good. Now when plates of food far too tough for fragile pensioners to cut or chew for themselves are dumped in front of them, they won't be pestered by members of their family irritatingly cutting it up for them, or noisily feeding it to them if they are too frail to feed themselves.

That, of course, being rather my point...

Also ...due to health & safety restrictions ...Friends of hospitals and nursing homes, will not be taking our old folk on those much loved country pub meal outings. Home made cakes for residents are also banned, because they do not contain the required "E" numbers.

Luckily, starvation, does not seem to infringe on a patients "Human Rights".
