Time to remove WRVS from hospital; LETTERS.

THE Women's Royal Voluntary Service (WRVS) give the impression of being a very benevolent organisation but in reality those who are out-of-touch in the head office in Cardiff are actually very hard-nosed and couldn''t care less for the local independent supplier. I have been following with much interest the sandwich debate involving Menai Deli in Ysbyty Gwynedd (Butty War hots up, Daily Post, August 24).

Time and again, the small independent supplier loses out to large national companies and on this occasion it is to a Cornish company. It is often against the better judgement of the majority involved at a local level and the WRVS are looking purely at their bottom line, regardless of the consequences.

It is fundamentally wrong that Menai Deli loses its largest customer and though they may be well-meaning, the Charities Commission, our MPs and AMs are unlikely to do anything effectual.

Some hospitals, such as Ysbyty Glan Clwyd, operate under the 'League Of Friends'' banner and rightfully make all decisions in-house.

I suggest that Ysbyty Gwynedd faces up to the problem, shows a little more resolve and removes the WRVS logo from their premises, the sooner the better.
