I returned to the NHS Warehouse since our last visit there and found yet more items of amazement, excitement, intrigue, horror…. well, yes.
Continuing our series of what is to be found in the back rooms of the NHS. This month: a disused warehouse. The warehouse I was packing boxes in, thus:
Many desks, filing cabinets, chairs and other assorted random furniture. Also, some family photos and this cryptic message:
Then, behind a wall of desks I found these. Some for the geeks:
Some for the adventurers:
Some for the inquisitive:
Others for the wildlife enthusiasts (some perhaps more enthusiastic than others):
Other assorted goodies:
And one for me:
… not quite in a Galaxy far, far away. I promised a Photo Essay (a phrase I have gleefully stolen from somewhere and will endeavour not to use again) now more like a Photo Album on “What the NHS Keep in Their Back Rooms” It just so transpires that this evening will be your lucky evening. And I want to play with the feature that lets you add photos to this type of blog.
The story goes like this:
When I started my new job in the NHS, I was seconded out to help update some IT programmes in various GP surgeries across the county that I live in. Let it be publicly known that I am not an IT Technician, nor am I in the least bit technically minded, in fact I resented the whole thing but the powers that be thought I was the best person for the job, or new enough not to complain. So, there I found myself stood in front of various pieces of equipment, the first of which I (I wish I was joking) could not find the on switch for, damning the day I ever first laid eyes on a fracking PC. However, had I not have been forced out on to this Field of Duty, I would not have discovered these beauties hidden in a disused (and horribly dusty) back room of a GP Surgery. I will let you speculate as to how some of these items found themselves in the possession of the NHS as a whole but it is a true fact that that is exactly where they were held…
