Some NHS hospital trusts are calling in exterminators on a near daily basis amid a plague of rats and mice at many ageing sites.
Data obtained by The Telegraph reveal that Barts Health NHS Trust, which has four sites in London, had 277 call-outs for rodent-related issues in 2022.
Barts is one of the capital’s largest trusts and is home to St Bartholomew’s Hospital in the City of London, the oldest hospital in England and founded 900 years ago.
However, the NHS trust’s “eclectic and often aged historical buildings” are leading to ongoing issues with rats and mice, it has emerged.
Fire all the power skirts running seminars on gender equity and hire some rat catchers instead. Hell, offer the power skirts the more useful jobs.
