A Little History -

The NSRIs roots go back to a dispensary which opened in 1804, the first public hospital in North Staffordshire. The dispensary allowed sick patients to get diagnosis and treatment, and provided vaccination for smallpox, eventually the hospital grew to facilitate fever patients and new facilities were put in place to treat general and accident patients.

The hospital expanded further, due to an increase in sick patients and accidents in the local pottery and mining industries. The hospital then relocated to another site and employed a small team of staff, this site was surrounded by factories and other industry and became unsuitable due to new ideas about infection control at the time, so the site was relocated again.

The hospital was then moved to its current location in Hartshill, as the North Staffordshire Royal Infirmary (fast forward) then later merged with the City General Hospital to form the Royal Stoke University Hospital.

Our Visit -

Our first visit here was very much a sort of a 'I'm bored, wanna see if that hospital is any good?' kind of trip. We found it fairly easy to get around and navigate around the maze of padlocked doors that fills this place, visiting the operating theatres and anything else we could snap before it got dark. Once outside we fancied our chances at some other buildings (i.e. mortuary), but security night shift had just rocked up and got us out of there.

Fast forward a week and we're ready to try again with a few different tactics in mind. This time around everything went fairly smooth, minus a few cuts and bruises. We did however find that security had been heightened a bit, there's now three guards on at a time and the main building is a fair bit more secure than before. However, well worth it for dem slabz..

A&E Operating Theatres -

The rest of the A&E department was completely stripped with almost no photographic value, so we headed straight for these.
