In Walking Distance

This morning I had an appointment for breast screening (my second in 15 months...the inability of NHS Scotland and NHS England to communicate digitally is nothing is not ludicrous, but I was happy to take up the offer) and decided I'd walk to the hospital - after all, it was only 3 miles away, and I could do with the exercise.

This photo was taken close to the main entrance of the hospital and looking across the road... this part of Cheshire is very rural, and the hospital is pretty much surrounded by open countryside.  Befitting its location, its quite a small hospital, but it has a good range of services, and has a unit served by the Christie specialist cancer hospital in Manchester.

It was all very simple and straight forward, a familiar process in one of those rooms that could be absolutely anywhere. I enjoyed my walk, which included finding where the local crematorium and two cemeteries are located (all fairly close to home).

Once again, I find myself reflecting on how very blessed I am to live and work in places where I have access to so much that is good and life-giving.
