Music at Guys
I was in Guys Hospital last week, waiting in the ENT was pretty grim mainly because they had a TV on really loud with horse racing followed by Noel Edmonds. This where people with hearing problems were listening out for someone to call out their name! But then a guy wandered in with a guitar and announced he was going to play for half an hour - with the TV turned down - and very nice it was too.
Osamu Yano's recital was arranged by Breathe Arts Health Research, apparently part of a project looking at how music in hospitals might reduce stress. Well it worked for me, as did the doctor's treatment of my ears - no permanent hearing loss.
