You name it
The most unintentionally funny story of the year was in last week’s PT (it helps if you think of John Cleese). It concerned the naming of the newly combined Peterborough and Huntingdon hospitals trust. Residents were invited to vote from a shortlist of potential names. I was not impressed by the winning choice of North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust but at the time I wasn’t aware of the other options. The PT revealed they were: Peterborough, Hinchingbrooke and Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust; Hinchingbrooke, Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust; The Nene, Ouse and Welland NHS Foundation Trust; Peterborough, South Lincolnshire and Huntingdonshire NHS Foundation Trust; and Huntingdon, Peterborough and South Lincolnshire NHS Foundation Trust. Remember the famous Monty Python sketch with the Judean People’s Front and the People’s Front Of Judea?
