It is time to protect hospital patients and their families from disgraceful profiteering.

It is simply disgraceful that hospital trusts and retail chains essentially exploit the most vulnerable and desperate people in society. You cannot excuse things like the recent WHSmith £7.99 toothpaste scandal, nor can you put it down to a "pricing error". There should be legislation ensuring rates and rents are on a par with the local area, and that prices in the retail outlets are too. The current practice undermines the very ethos of the NHS and preys upon people any decent society should be protecting.
