Dear Gerrie: HOSPITAL SLURRED.

Byline: Frank Harrison

THE coverage of events at Bedford Hospital which forced the resignation of chief executive Ken Williams (The Mirror, January 16) was thoroughly unjustified.

Bodies unceremoniously dumped as trash is so far from the truth. I worked for years as a technician at Bedford mortuary, where the dead are always handled with great reverence.

At this time of year Bedford's chapel of rest would be about the same temperature as the mortuary fridge, and this was a temporary arrangement due to circumstances beyond control.

The picture printed in many of our newspapers could been taken at any one of hundreds of hospital mortuaries in Britain this past week.
