Where do pennies go?

We read that the Morecambe Bay NHS Trust has overspent and is in financial difficulty. Is there any wonder?

Recently at WGH, whilst waiting for my wife, being an hour late for her treatment to start, I sat in a corridor which was approximately 50-feet long; there were five windows facing an enclosed quadrangle which was full of trees, bushes and pigeons.

Along the ceiling of the corridor were 10-recessed lights (large ones not small spotlights), these were all lit on a bright afternoon.

Whatever happened to looking after the pennies and the pounds taking care of themselves?
