Dr Sy Jones couldn’t believe her luck. Getting a position at the prestigious BHAD, short for the Broken Hill Assessment & Development hospital was a privilege.  Her ancient Ford barely made it up the hill and she gasped when the hospital came into sight.  It was much bigger than she thought and the antiquated styling was fascinating.  Large blue shutters against grey walls made the windows into eyes and the roof into a hairline.  …
