The Greenlea Unit is a newly opened cancer treatment & chemotherapy facility at the Huddersfield Royal Infirmary hospital. It was originally opened in 1996 but has recently been expanded to allow for more patients to be treated there. Eight oncology clinic rooms mean that more than 150 patients a week can be treated.
Chemotherapy lead nurse Jackie Swire told local publication The Examiner: “We are delighted to be able to have this new facility for our patients. We have been wanting to improve it for a long time and are now really pleased that our patients, their friends and their families will have a new, improved environment as they go through assessment and then treatment for a wide range of cancers.”
We were commissioned to document the refurbished Greenlea Unit in a series of interior and exterior photographs. As well as capturing the new clinic rooms, we also focused on the airy and spacious waiting room, patient “quiet room”, help/support resource centre and cafeteria.
We have decided to use handheld camera and wide lens to capture the most of the area. Because our aim was to expose the the professionalism of the machines and interiors we had to take these photographs very early on the opening day.
Amazing job! I really appreciate all your efforts and flexibility to take the images for us.
