The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your Views -

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?
