Introduction to the project

The 'Look at Me!' project explores the varied and unique stories from 12 families using the Spires Cleft Lip and Palate Service based at Salisbury District Hospital.

The initial idea was borne of the fact that as patients use the NHS over time their medical notes grow as a record of events. But medical notes don't capture the whole picture. What else can't we see? Using Medical Photography for Cleft Lip & Palate treatment means surgeons can see what they need to repair. These images are an essential clinical tool but they are not always helpful for families coming to terms with diagnosis and the treatment that follows. Could the NHS offer more?
