Today I had to take a trip to Wolvercote which is a few miles out of Oxford. It is a beautiful place and here too is a favourite restaurant we go to often.The meadows are ablaze with flowers and trees full of blossom. I so enjoyed seeing this again.
After I had finished my appointment I took a bus into the city centre. I liked the idea of an hour or two browsing the stores. As we approached the city centre we passed by the hospital I had worked at for some years. This hospital relocated it's services to the John Radcliffe in 2006 and this meant a move for all the staff. A time of great change and apprehension for everyone.The hospital was bought by the University. As we passed by I was filled with fond memories of my time spent nursing my patients there. This was a wonderful and a really nice place to work .The building it itself was old but the inside was so welcoming and friendly. So many memories filled my mind just by driving past-fun times,happy times,sad times,challenging times and so much more. Thoughts of how I had loved working at this hospital and how I have been on a journey in my nursing life too. Working my way to promotion over the years and now a Ward Manager. Never ever losing the focus of why I was there-my patients. My goal to make a difference to someones day every single day! So for me it was wonderful to see the hospital again!
I wanted to share some pictures of Oxford and one of the colleges and the John Radcliffe hospital.
