It was a very hot day in September in Stoke Mandeville. In spite of a large fan in the corner those of us sitting in Eye Casualty were feeling the heat. Luckily. more than once during our waiting time a very kind lady came with a tray of tissues which she had soaked in iced water; we patients were invited to take a cold wet tissue each to dab on our foreheads, necks etc. Deliciously refreshing! How thoughtful of her. I had a little water spray and a small fan in my bag which I used now and then. But those iced-water tissues were more effective and very welcome.
