Porn film shot in hospital raised money for NHS

A “BIG budget” porn movie was shot in a London hospital that hired out one of its wards to a film company, it has emerged.

The movie also ended up generating “substantial income” for the hospital, an MP revealed.

Speaking in the House of Commons, Tory MP Penny Mordaunt said: “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.

“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).”

Ms 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.”

The Evening Standard reported the hospital in question is St Charles Hospital in West London but were unable to get anyone to go on the record.
