I often travel for treatment at the Royal Marsden hospital where I am fortunate to have been accepted onto a trial for a new cancer drug. It's what's called a 'First In Human' trial, which means that the company developing it has already exploded some guinea pigs and fish, and a few rabbits' heads may have turned blue and fallen off. Thus, the confidence is there that none of that will happen when it then goes into Me. Whatever happens next is called 'science'.
On many occasions I stay overnight at The Rembrandt Hotel opposite the V&A museum. It has a pool and a jacuzzi, and it was the latter that inspired this work as I soaked away an evening in preparation of what often seems like an exsanguination first thing the following morning, prior to the examinations of the day ahead.
