this article is full of incorrect facts

"Though I kept the calls to just five minutes a day, at 29p a minute"

this price does not exist.

"To call most mobile networks it costs 13p a minute at peak times, 8p per minute off peak, and just 5p per minute at the weekend. "

and... BT payphone minimum charge 40p.

"The other charge patients and families complain about is the cost of TV hire - an average of £2.90 a day. Sky TV costs from £15 a month - a sixth of this. "

incorrect, the average is £2.90 + £2 + £2.33 / 3 = £2.41.
Patientline also provide you with a TV screen, headphones, they clean it, maintain it for free, have a 24hour british call centre. How can you compare that with Sky?? Also... Sky then charge for internet and interactive games. these are included on patientline

"Although radio service is free, patients can't listen to it without headphones. "

radio can be used without headphones on most wards, and if patients want headphones they can ask for some, they don't cost anything.

The article is terrible it's clear that it has not been researched correclty. very biased.

THESE COMMENTS WILL BE DELETED BY PETER TROY AS HE KNOWS THIS IS A FAIR POINT AND IT SCARES HIM BECAUSE IT THROWS HIS ARGUMENT TO PIECES.
