In another thread I have been posting info about the Infirmary in Cardiff sent to me by a very helpful officer on Cardiff City Council.
I have been offered a guided visit round the site of the Infirmary while it is being restored. For health reasons travelling is problematic at the moment.
Anyone in or near Cardiff who would like to visit the Royal Infiormary site let me know and I will see what can be done.
Git your PM and have sent you an answer
All the best

Thanks to Chris, I'm going to see what I can sort out for this.
If the site visit goes ahead and if I can get permission, I'm hoping to be able to take along some professional photography equipment - so there will be an almost virtual tour available on the site for those who are interested but can't make it to Cardiff.
Many thanks for the second PM
Let me know how your chat with Richard goes - I'm sure it will be OK as he was very enthusiastic and helpful when I contacted him and has sent me a vast amount of material

Not wishing to prejudge matters, but I sense Data Protection Act issues here if patients appear in images...and hard to see how you can film the inside of a hospital without inadvertently capturing patient images...careful how you word your request Sarah!
The parts in question are unoccupied and covered externally in scaffolding. The tour would only be of the conservation project in parts of the building that are being restored or redeveloped.
Oh that ought to be fine then...hopefully you'll get a go-ahead and we'll all benefit from seeing the images...(I was just judging from the crap we got from proposing to film on one of our bus stations!)
