A spokesman for the National Health Service told The Guardian: “This is absolutely dim. A few places are stealing ID badges as staff leave their confidence. As soon as staff is out of place They will wait and steal them for free food and will also be able to shop during the protected early morning shopping hour that some supermarkets have set up for NHS staff.
