Again, I couldn’t believe how clustered Hine’s ward designs were - as they folded in on each other to form courtyards, they appeared to gain height, topped off with this strange small room.

It looked a little like an observation point.

But this wasn't part of Hine's original plan - and no doubt he'd have been confused, and a little angry, at these jutting extensions.

It turns out that these are lift shafts - there are six dotted around the hospital.
