FATHER Christmas dropped in to see patients at Louth County Hospital.
The visit was arranged by the caring team at Spire Hospital Radio, which broadcasts to the wards.
The radio team visit patients at the hospital, talk to them and obtain record requests.
Many patients say that feeling isolated from the outside world can be one of the worst aspects of staying hospital and Hospital Radio does its best to break down this isolation. They broadcast from 7pm to 10pm.
