I had a brief stay in a private hospital recently and was amazed to find 
they had a wine list, although my waiter (wearing a waist coat and bow tie 
no less) couldn't recommend anything to go with stale, re-heated vegetable 
I'm glad someone else mentioned how expensive the stay was, just over $3,000 
a day! I know tests are expensive, £180 for an X-ray and £900 for an MRI 
scan is what I have been billed for, but how can they justify that much
