The Christie Hospital
The largest cancer centre in Europe isn’t the first place that springs to mind when you imagine who’d take advantage of virtual tour technology, but it makes perfect sense.
As a single site the grounds are huge and navigating any hospital can be difficult so the guys at The Christie comissioned See Inside Group to help digitally map their premises as a way for patients and visitors be able to plan their journey as well as inspect their facilities at a difficult time.
Photographed over two separate Saturdays to ensure the buildings we’re as empty as possible photographer Dan Root recalls “It was earily quiet, walking around an empty hospital was the strangest experience. I’m honoured to be part of this project though, a large proportion of the population is touched by cancer at some point in their lives and if our work helps comfort just one person, by ensuring they’re in a suitable environment then it’s worth doing.”
The Street View virtual tour of The Christie will appear on their new website launching in Feb 2016.
