A note popped under my door from Healthcare.

"This is to advise you that one or more of your prescribed medicines are known to cause an increased sensitivity to sunlight.  This may lead to sunburn when exposed to direct sunlight.

Accordingly, you are eligible to receive a bottle of sunscreen lotion from the Healthcare department to use as an aid to prevent sunburn.  You are eligible to one bottle per year".

Whoopee, a freebie from the system!  I'd jump higher, but on attempt to collect this bonus, they had run out on the first day...


  1. Given the risk to health from exposure from the sun and the advantages of being outside, surely it would make sense to simply provide a bottle of sunblock at the entrance to the exercise yard (if necessary attached to some string if there is fear of it being nicked).

    They would nick the string!
