Local residents invited to go ‘behind the scenes’ at Poole Hospital Open Day

Poole Hospital seen from Poole ParkThe public are invited to attend the 2015 Poole Hospital Open Day on 4 July, for a chance to find out more about the hospital and the broad range of services it provides, as well as ‘behind the scenes’ tours in areas such as the hospital theatres, endoscopy department and pathology labs.

The event takes place from 10am - 2.30pm on our main site on Longfleet Road.

Basic health checks including blood pressure testing and dietary checks will be available, and visitors will be able to brush up on their first aid skills.

There will also be a chance to visit interactive stands, see some of our equipment used in action from the neo-natal unit and critical care department and visitors can try on a chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear warfare (CBRN) suit.

You can take part in a number of activities, including a look inside an ambulance and fire engine as well as face painting for children and a BBQ (weather permitting).

The programme also includes a series of health talks from our experienced clinicians, covering topics including major trauma, dementia, cancer care, allergies in children and maintaining a healthy heart.

Keep an eye out on our Twitter page @poole_hospital and website for more details as the event draws nearer.
