Hospi­tal tea row brew­ing

Daily Star - - NEWS -

HOSPI­TAL clean­ers say they are be­ing forced to drink se­cret cups of tea af­ter be­ing banned from tak­ing breaks.

Staff are not al­lowed a brew break un­til they have worked non-stop for six hours, say bosses at Glouces­ter­shire Care Ser­vices NHS Trust.

A whistle­blower for the porters, kitchen staff and other man­ual work­ers said they feel like “naughty chil­dren”.

Bosses con­firmed the rule but added that they en­cour­age man­agers to en­sure staff take “ap­pro­pri­ate” breaks through­out their shifts.
