NHS staff told to eat away from desks for Ramadan

"HOSPITAL staff in the Lothians have been told not to eat at their desks to avoid offending Muslim colleagues during Ramadan.
NHS Lothian has advised doctors and other health workers not to have working lunches during the 30-day fast, which begins next month."

Scotsman, 13-Aug-07
Wonder if some doctors get a little shaky hands when they haven't eaten? But no memo about the effects of not eating. That would be insensitive.
