Story of the Hands

Many patients comment on this picture, and we love to tell the story.

The picture "The Hands"  hangs in our Wesley Clinic – it was sketched by David Woodford, the father of a baby, who had been given no hope of survival. Although this baby had been given an extremely bad prognosis in uteruo, Dr Carmody was of the opinion that despite the odds, it was worth trying to assist her and following his intervention she was delivered safely to her parents and sister.


"The Hands" were presented to Dr Carmody, by David in appreciation of the fact that he was willing to give his daughter a chance of survival against the odds.
