Clive, a Labour Party politician who has been the Member of Parliament for Sheffield Attercliffe since 1992 and elected as a member for Sheffield East this year, was welcomed to the Centre and given an insight into the day-to-day workings at the top rated hospital.
During the course of his visit, the Sheffield Wednesday FC fan took time to speak to patients on the wards and those who were attending follow-up consultations, he also had a peek at day surgery procedures.
