So we got there in plenty of time, and then waited - and ate lunch - in the car rather than enter early. Only to find the main entrance was shut because they are moving Covid patients around, so you have to enter via the old main entrance. Took extra time, but we got Brownie points for getting there right on time for the appointment.

And the first thing they did was send her for another test - A Lung Function. Which meant crossing the Main entrance as the only access to the Lung Function test equipment is via that.
So Security had a quick word, the patient transfer was suspended for ten minutes, a "clean path" was decontaminated through the affected area, and we were escorted through that and two sets of locked doors ...

Tests done, and we reversed our steps with another path being cleaned and back to the specialist.*

They are taking this seriously - even the elevators they were using were locked down, and have to be deep cleaned before returning them to "normal use".


* It's not cancer, it's not a fungal infection, it's a Long Covid effect that they are going to try treating with lots of steroids and a good amount of hope / guesswork. Looks like the weekly O2 deliveries will be continuing for a while.
