An interesting short stay in the new John Radcliffe Hospital on Oxford for my test. Impressive place with extensive additional buildings going up which will make a difference to the 'bed available' statistics when it is finished.
Still I hold to my basic view of hospitals. Nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to be sick there. The narrow beds for starters and the shared lights and sounds at night.
Its one of the pluses of deafness though that nightime noises can just be shut out. How do people manage when they don't have a hearing aid to switch off? It must be a real burden.
