    I figured a daytime trip was easily achievable.
    I headed in Boxing Day at first light for a good look around in natural light.

    Pics taken on two trips...26.12.2007 solo and a return trip on the 30th with 'Angel' who was all over this place with her camera !...:cool:

    Explorers reports since ,have given some great descriptions of the site and its History so lets skip that and get straight to the pics...:p

    I found this written with Betadine solution on a surface in the HDU.....
    ( probably by a demolition contractor, judging by the state the place is in ! )

    Theatre Level....Theatres in a surprising state of 'intactness'..but not for long ,I fear...each visit has seen more destruction here.

    On the Surgical floor I found a filing cabinet with a load of records for Pacemaker patients, Heart Valve Implants and a sugical procedure called Cardiomyoplasty......
    Cardiomyoplasty was a fairly novel treatement for a failing heart where a large chunk of back muscle was resected and tunneled through to the chest cavity...here it was 'wrapped around the failing heart ventricles ( with its original blood supply intact)...An electronic stimulator, very similar to a pacemaker was attached to the muscle with a pacing lead so that the muscle could be stimulated rhythmically to aid the hearts contraction.
    The results of this technique were not as good as initially hailed...and many patients died ( although they were all quite sick to begin with and need this level of intervention).

    Its a great explore , despite the demolition carnage.....just watch out for the asbestos....its particulary prevalent on the upper levels.
