Churchill Hospital


Tim Hunkin has created a short animated film, showing the journey of a packet of pills from shelf to patient - with its adventures along the way.

It is shown in the waiting area of the Pharmacy to inform and entertain those waiting and provide an insight into why they often have to wait some time.
