Northern Ireland[edit]

Does the Northern Ireland office help fund the hospital? Thunderwing 21:41, 27 March 2007 (UTC)

  • I've checked the 2005-06 annual accounts for the State Hospital, for funding it states:"Most of the expenditure of the Board is met from funds advanced by the SEHD within an

approved revenue resource limit. If the Board underspends against the approved revenue resource limit, the balance may be carried forward to the following year, subject to restraints imposed by the SEHD. Cash drawn down to fund expenditure within this approved revenue resource limit will be credited to the general fund. Miscellaneous income should include all income receivable by the Board that is not classed as funding." So looks like the NI doesn't fund the hospital. Thunderwing 19:23, 28 March 2007 (UTC)

The hospital has an alarm system that is activated if any patient escapes to alert people in the vicinity[edit]

So, can I ask, what sort of patient is likely to escape and then alert people in the vicinity?

This is a good example of the sloppy language that we find in Wikipedia.

The sentence would read more clearly - and more accurately - if it stated, for example (and there's more than one way to do this), "The hospital has an alarm system which, when activated should a prisoner escape, will alert people in the vicinity." Or, even better, and simpler, "The hospital has an alarm system which is activated when a prisoner escapes, and which alerts people in the neighbourhood to possible danger." —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:24, 21 January 2011 (UTC)
