WHILE Mr Knight is correct about a senior member of staff from Hinchingbrooke Hospital recently having visited treatment centres in the USA (Letters, October 11) he clearly does not know the full story.

All the expenses for the visit were paid by NHS Elect and there was no cost whatsoever to Hinchingbrooke Hospital.
