    So I read a newspaper article today about a hospital in Southampton that has banned staff from making patients toast unless they are fully trained. Fully trained. In making TOAST.

    They even had to put up a toast making guide.

    Even my 9 year old daughter can make toast.

    What is the NHS coming to if it's staff don't know how to correctly make toast?

    Scary.

    South Tyneside hospital banned the staff from making toast in case they burnt it and set the smoke alarms off.. apparently it costs the trust £800 every time the fire brigade are called out..oh and 4p for the bread.

    That isn't the story reported here. The story reported said that the staff needed a step by step guide to toast making, including what toppings to give to patients and what plate to use.
