Scary places though hospitals can be, it’s surprising how quickly you can start to feel at home if you visit often enough. For me that means looking for things to photograph. And having shown some of the old buildings at Tameside Hospital the other day, I thought I should balance things out with some of the new.
On the left are the giraffe sculptures that stand above the entrance to children’s outpatients. As you can see from the windows, I took this one in the evening when it was closed – I didn’t want to be accused of any Savilesque impropriety.
I was visiting Mrs P, of course, and hopefully she will be back home today after her remaining tests.
I must say that the nursing care has been excellent and the added bonus of Mrs P’s extended stay is that it has given her an opportunity to recover from her hip operation, not that she’ll be running a marathon any time soon. If she were, she really would be the Bionic Woman!
