Bowmore hospital on Islay accused of switching off heating in order to cut costs

NHS bosses at the hospital in Bowmore on Islay came under fire both from members of public and their own staff lately after patients were left shivering in their beds when heating in wards went off.

According to a recent media report on the matter, the wards became cold at 1am, which left patients very cold and nurses unable to provide them with thicker blankets due to health and safety regulations.

Hospital staff claimed that this was an attempt cut costs. However, after receiving numerous complaints from staff, patients and families alike, the hospital decided to quickly drop the unpopular policy.
