This is indeed is a cause for concern.
When I recently visited the hospital I was surprised to see a splendid new structure over the main entrance - very impressive it is too. However, I was not quite clear what was its purpose. Surely not to keep off the rain, from three points of the compass this will blow straight underneath. A helipad, perhaps - improbable as there is no visible means of getting patients down once unloaded from the helicopter. The expression of a giant ego? Certainly of no help in maintaining staff levels or replacing closed wards.
When I showed a picture of it to an architect, he did not demur when I suggested it might have cost a quarter of a million pounds. I leave your readers to decide if this was money well spent.
