Another hospital scene at The Royal Newcastle Centre. Music sooths. Volunteer musicians take turns at the piano.
Cafes and shops are among the services in this space which offers some relief from the medical milieu.
The Centre is attached to the John Hunter Hospital, New Lambton, and has orthopaedic type services and more. The Centre replaces the original 'Royal' by the seaside in Newcastle East, which has been demolished and the land sold for high rise apartments.
