Very nice, but that cost a lot of money which could have been spent on cancer care.


Comment by darren on 28th January 2016 at 08:28
Jonno the money comes from a different budget and would never have been spent on direct cancer care. Although it's proven that nice surroundings and quirky places help in cancer care and provide a positive attitude.


Comment by A.W. on 28th January 2016 at 08:44
Very true Jonno, it's very artisitic but a proper bed of flowers would have looked nicer and cost a lot less.


Comment by John Morris on 28th January 2016 at 09:30
I agree with darren that nice surroundings have a positive effect on not only cancer patients but all invalids. Some people criticised the Friends of Haigh WWI display because the nurses looked too glamorous, but the nurses were encouraged if not required to look glamorous to encourage their patients in their recovery. Excellent photo, again, Dave.

I'll go with that darren, but i still maintain too much will have been spent on it, it would seem to me that they've got too much money in the wrong budget.


Comment by Vb on 28th January 2016 at 14:20
Money for this may have come from donations made by patients and relatives in thanks for care given. It could have been ward funds which can build up and the money has got to be spent. It is separate from govt. funds. Relatives state they would like the money used in remembrance of loved ones or perhaps given for equipment for the ward. This was done at the hospital I worked at and it is usually the case in all NHS hospitals. I am only saying this may be the case.


Comment by Dave (Oy) on 29th January 2016 at 18:19
The money was raised by staff and patients.


Comment by B R on 30th January 2016 at 13:48
well said Vb, you are right money does come from patients, and their family and friends, carry on fund raising regardless wether their loved ones have survived cancer or not ,some times doing their remarkable tasks with broken hearts, and anything that brings comfort to anyone fighting this evil desease, and being able to bring The Wonderful CHRISTIE HOSPITAL on our Doostep , then it realy doesn't matter where the funds come from .x


Comment by Vb on 30th January 2016 at 19:52
Thankyou BR this just reminds me of retired staff who carry on volunteering as well. At the hospital where I worked there was a retired Sister in her eighties who used to rattle a box in the entrance amongst others who used to wash dishes in the kitchens! Those people aren't recognised enough!
