Flesh-nibbling fish infiltrate hospital

Tropicana foot spa treatmentI took this photo about a month ago – a few days before the health dangers of fish spa treatment became news headlines. I couldn’t get close enough to focus on the fish tanks on the floor because this guy was in the process of cleaning the equipment.

I thought it bizarre to have Garra rufa fish nibbling flesh in (my local) hospital. The salon, in Outpatients Reception is used by both visitors and patients. I’m going back next week (as an outpatient, not to use the salon). I can’t wait to see if the fish are still there!
