This is a slide show of single images which are not connected into a narrative. They depict some of the combinations of injection-giver and injection-receiver that punctuated life for many in the old asylums of the British National Health Service. There are essences of the power relationship between patient and nurse from those days. The patient never gets to see the nurse's naked rear. The beneficiaries of the NHS regime were the paid staff, and those whose interests were served by the patients being out of the way for a long time. Strangely, we have Prime Minister Thatcher to thank for the closure of these pernicious institutions...She's not always associated with social justice!
