Bingo should be offered to hospital patients11th January 2011
The British Medical Association has suggested that hospitals offer games like bingo to patients to hasten recovery and save health service funds.
Dr Vivienne Nathanson, the BMA's head of science and ethics, said: "What people sometimes forget is that while helping people to feel better during their hospital stay we can reduce their need for painkillers, their likelihood of getting some depression and perhaps not eating enough...if we can speed people's recovery, they have shorter time in hospital, shorter time for the problems of being in hospital and of course save money."
