Health Chiefs in Sheffield were left puzzled yesterday morning (Monday 4th April) when they discovered the huge banner (10metres long by 1.5metres deep) advertising the Walk-in centre move had mysteriously disappeared.
The banner that had been displayed prior to Friday, similar to the banner that has disappeared.
The banner displayed on the Royal Hallamshire Hospital’s multi storey car park building off Glossop Road was put up on Friday to mark the move of the Walk-in centre from the Royal Hallamshire Hospital to Broad Lane.
Daniel Mason, NHS Sheffield’s lead for Walk-in services, said: “I couldn’t believe it when the estates team at the hospital said someone has walked off with our Walk-in banner - who would want to steal it?
“We had the same banner, in the same place all last month saying that the Walk-in Centre was moving and it proved to be an effective way of promoting the change in service ensuring people who needed walk-in services will now turn up at the correct place.
“It appears that the banner, much like the Walk-in centre, has now left the hospital.”
The Walk-in centre is now based at the Sheffield City GP Health Centre on the corner of Broad Lane and Rockingham Street and is open 8am - 10pm. For more information visit: www.sheffield.nhs.uk/walk-in/
