The Gosport scan­dal

The Oldie - - READER'S LETTERS -

SIR: In Theodore Dal­rym­ple’s ar­ti­cle in the Oc­to­ber is­sue of The Oldie, one piece of back­ground to the Gosport hos­pi­tal drama was omit­ted.

It was re­cently ad­mit­ted that the sy­ringes in use at the time could be ex­cep­tion­ally dif­fi­cult to man­age. This fact was ap­par­ently kept tightly un­der wraps for a long time, as it might have re­flected badly on NHS providers. Tessa Blood­worth, Gosport
