From: Mr. E. King, Buxton Drive, Bexhill

Recently my wife visited the Irvine Unit in Bexhill to ask if she could have two urine specimen bottles.

The reason for asking was not for her but for our five-year-old grand-daughter, as she is required to supply a sample monthly.

One member of the staff was willing to assist, but was immediately over ruled by a senior, stating that we don’t give them out to ‘people’. I understand the requirement to be sensible with supplies, but there is hardly going to be a ‘run’ on sample bottles.

I do so trust that the senior is as vigilant with all other supplies and equipment, and does not permit any wasteful usage of such.

Incidentally my wife went to a surgery, not ours, and was given two without question.

I have a high regard for our nurses, but a little latitude would have been helpful.
