Mail readers at their finest! They usually harp on and on about hospital-acquired infection. Except when it means having a go at the 'elf and safety killjoys'. And of course, the cards haven't be banned at all.
I'd have thought that these jobsworths would have been better off spending their time sorting out the filth that causes MRSA et al in our hospitals!

This has got to be a joke! If not, just where are our hospitals going too. It is hell in hospital before this, and these cards do cheer one up!

I wouldn't be surprised to wake up one day and find that they have banned patients from the hospitals as well. These health ans so called safety people are stark raving bonkers.

Why does England remind me of East Germany before the fall of the Berlin Wall?

Because you're an idiot?
You know, I never thought I'd support 'elf and safety', but on this one they may be right, I'm a nurse and believe me some people have so many cards it's like a branch of Clintons. Now, you try doing a job when there are cards falling off the dresser, you can't put anything down because the tops are cluttered. Let's face it, you don't need a card to say 'get well' in hospital, in fact if you want to offer a gesture of goodwill to your loved one make sure you have washed and disinfected your hands before you set foot on the ward.
