Kidney Dialysis Unit arrives
This may look like an ugly utilitarian prefabricated building of no architectural worth - and I suppose it is. But I think its one of the most beautiful structures that I have ever seen. Its the temporary demountable kidney dialysis unit which was delivered to Welshpool's Victoria Memorial Hospital over the weekend. For such a long time the good people of Montgomeryshire have waited. It will be located in the Hospital car park, which was once the site of the maternity unit at which I was born. I understand that it should be in operation in less than two months time. Poignantly, next weekend, I will be reading at the funeral service of one of those who would probably have been a regular user. Now we have to push on with the permanent unit which it's hoped will be opened in 2012.
