"Don't hold NHS business meetings in a cafe"

The Cafe Nero Bar at Piccadilly Station, Manchester, seems to be a popular haunt for NHS staff holding meetings.
I have learned much about how the service is run and also about the way that they negotiate contracts and deal with suppliers.
Please hold meetings in meeting rooms where they should be, and consider employing professional procurement and negotiating staff - who do not tell suppliers who have not signed any contracts that 'they will almost certainly get the business'.
This is an ongoing problem.
