    Until recently I thought there was only the mortuary here, and really couldn't be bothered to do all that way to see it. Only recently there has been more and more pictures of the hospital, so we decided to take a trip.

    We weren't disappointed. First of all the mortuary, which wasn't as big as I thought. Somehow I thought it was immense, but it was just a usual size really. I didn't count the fridges, but there's quite a lot...

    There's three slabs...

    The 360 degree drain, I don't even want to think what this looked like after a busy day...

    I wonder if they ever used to clean under here...

    Another view of the slabs...

    Just a couple of random pictures...

    Moving on to the rest of the hospital, there's a mix of old and new, and a lot of it.

    Some detail from an old safe...

    The very yellow physiotherapy...

    Just a bit of floor...

    In the newer bit of the hospital we found the recently posted A&E sign, and put it together properly...

    There were a lot of something-ology labs, reasonably intact...

    and several blood banks dotted over the place, I've never seen one before and I've been in dozens of hospitals...

    In the main reception area, it's very modern, with comfy seats and facilities...

    The pharmacy...

    There's dozens of wards, pretty boring standard stuff really...

    The only one that was slightly different was intensive care near the operating theatres.

    There was at least six operating theatres here, plus we found some more elsewhere as well, and not the little minor injury type. It was dark by then though and we'll have to go back for that.

    I love operating theatres... finding them not being cut up in them. I love the jewel like lights that just seem to float there, they almost look like aliens...

    All in all one of the best hospital sites around.
