"Wayne+Collen pictures halt medication"

(as a relative),

Staff have been extremely good to my father, who has a rare cancer tumour and is a trial patient.

Monday 16th of June: he had to wait hours for a transfusion, which he didn't mind, but the following day he had to wait before coming home. He did not get his medication, as all the staff were around a copy of the OK magazine looking at blinking pictures of Wayne and Colleens wedding! Tired and feeling very sick, my mum took the name of his medicine and took it to his GPs to receive his tablets. Only to find no measure had been given, then to be told that the hospital was too busy to help and to ring back. Were they were still looking at pictures?

Anyway, thanks to my dad’s GP everything is sorted and now he enjoys taking all 22 of his pills. Why were they looking at these pictures in work time? I work in a supermarket, if I did that I'd be out the door!
