Guy's Hospital's dermatology department has been presented with a stunning painting by patient Francis Farmar.
"I wanted to give something back to the fantastic staff who have cared for me over the years," said the artist.
"The department has been terrific – their hard work inspired me to make something for them which they can appreciate time and again."
Famed for his bird's-eye panoramas, Farmar painted a picture of the view from Guy's Tower, spanning Big Ben, the London Eye, Tate Modern and the Bankside area, St Paul's Cathedral and Southwark Cathedral. The painting is now hanging on the ninth floor of Guy's Tower in the dermatology research unit.
Francis's consultant Jonathan Barker said: "We're so grateful for the donation. I've been a huge fan of Francis's work for a long time, and we now have a stunning piece of his work in our department for all to enjoy. It brings us great pleasure and we're honoured he thought of us."
Last autumn the painting was displayed as part of Farmar's exhibition at the Duncan Campbell Gallery.
