END GAME: On leave

End Game applauds the irony in the decision by a patient at Nottinghamshire’s Wathwood Hospital to name an onsite restaurant ‘Section 17’.

The mental health hospital’s eatery, staffed by patients, takes its name from a section of the Mental Health Act granting patients leave into the community.

While End Game is genuinely impressed by the initiative, designed to help patients gain skills and confidence, it’s an odd name for the business if its staff can’t actually leave the premises.
