... held in the medical directors office. The nursing director was present too, and it was great for Michelle and I to have the opportunity of speaking to the "top dogs" within this organisation. I think we did ourselves proud and we certainly had Professor Neelam interested and "on board", she agreed with most things we presented and said she could see no problem with no going ahead with the plans to open the centre.
