The Chairman of the Central Manchester and Manchester Children's University NHS Trust thinks that by giving us, the punters, a choice in the name of the new Manchester children's hospital, we will feel a sense of "ownership". He added "The new hospital will be at the heart of the community in Greater Manchester and the north west - it will belong to the people who live here and we want them to feel a sense of pride in it".
So the Choices are:
a) Royal Manchester Children's Hospital
b) Manchester Children's Hospital
c) Other - please suggest.
Option a) will really maintain the status quo, Option b) is really for vehement anti-monarchists, Option c) I cannot see what others have suggested.
And given that anyone, in the whole wide world, can vote on the new name at the new hospital's website, then I would encourage my international readership to vote so the decision is truly local!
