Hospital hired ward for ‘big budget’ porn movie

Sydney: A London hospital hired out one of its wards to a film company, which shot a big budget porn movie in the premises, revealed a Brit MP.

The movie also ended up generating ‘substantial income’ for the hospital, said Tory MP Penny Mordaunt, while speaking in the House of Commons.

“When I was director of Kensington and Chelsea Council, I discovered that one of our local hospitals was hiring out one of its closed but fully equipped wards to a film company to use as a film set,” the Sydney Morning Herald quoted him as saying.

“To add insult to injury, the movie was a pornographic one.

“Although I cannot claim to have seen the final picture as I understand, these things are no longer claimable on parliamentary expenses it was a big-budget affair and generated substantial income for the hospital.

“But apart from cheering up a few of the in-patients, it cannot be said to be contributing to the objectives of the primary care trust (PCT),” she said, referring to the trusts that manage primary care health services in England.

Mordaunt, who is MP for Portsmouth North, did not name the hospital during the debate on improving transparency in government accounting.

A statement issued by NHS Kensington and Chelsea said: “We can confirm this incident occurred some time prior to 2002 under a predecessor organisation’s management and prior to the formation of PCTs.”
