Picture this: Hospital patients in lockdown photo contest

   Hospital patients with mental health problems or disabilities from across the north of England are being given the chance to take photographs about their lockdown experience that could appear in exhibitions around the region.

   The competition, which is open to staff and patients on inpatient wards run by the Cumbria, Northumberland, Tyne and Wear trust, encourages people to take photos within the grounds of the Trust sites.

   Dolores O’Doherty, an occupational therapist, came up with the idea, saying she found a lot of patients were getting sick of walking the same route around the hospital sites, while staff were spending their breaks indoors not getting any fresh air.

   The winning photographs will go on show at the Biscuit Factory in Newcastle, Alnwick Gardens and venues in Cumbria and Sunderland.
