Staff from Hinchingbrooke Hospital will be welcoming visitors to an open day on Saturday 14 July in the Treatment Centre from 11am to 3pm, in celebration of the NHS turning 70.
The hospital will be opening its doors to members of the public, giving them the opportunity to take a behind-the-scenes look at areas they wouldn’t normally visit, including theatres and pathology.
Visitors will be able to speak to staff and learn more about the fantastic work going on across the hospital. There will be something for everyone and children are invited to bring their favourite soft toy along to our teddy bear clinic for a health MOT.
Rob Hughes, Chairman for North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust which runs Hinchingbrooke Hospital, said: “On behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like to say how extremely proud we are of our hospital and the developments in services to improve care for our patients. We are especially proud of all of our dedicated staff and look forward to the opportunity to showcase our fantastic facilities to the public.
The open day is a great way to mark the NHS turning 70 and we’re looking forward to celebrating this significant milestone with the local community.”
There is no need to book, just pop along to the Hospital from 11am – 3pm.
Parking will be free on the day.
