You wouldn’t expect a hospital to be overly concerned with the health of grammar and good spelling – after all, they’ve got far more important things to think about. But then again, while I’m happy to overlook the weird random capitalisation/pluralisation so beloved of official letter writers, when a there/their mix-up changes the sense of the sentence it’s more than just irksome. These letters are on TEMPLATE, so really, there’s no excuse.
