It was revealed today that Stafford hospital has been sold to Dignitas for an undisclosed sum (but not very much).
A spokesman for Dignitas said: 'It's brilliant! We just put Dignitas stickers over anything which says NHS Stafford, and otherwise everything else stays exactly the same. And there's very little staff costs because there aren't any staff. Except for several hundred managers.
'Excuse me - I have to top myself. Which is how all the patients feel.'
