A UK doc is paid to play sudoku

Ridiculous use of resources over there:

In March, Mr Penman claimed that urgent operations were being delayed for months because his hospital did not have the cash.

He said then: “At a day care clinic I’d normally see six or even patients. But my boss ould only let me see one.

Then we all sat around drinking coffee. I’ve even got into sudoku and crosswords which is good for me, but not my patients. “I can’t go on. I have a duty of care to my patients, and that’s suffering.”
