Right Arrow Open Day at Southport Hospital
28 August 2018 at 09:45

Join us here at Southport and Formby District General Hospital on Saturday 8 September, between 11-4pm, for our behind-the-scenes Open Day. Visitors will see how we would deal with a major emergency, can ask experts about a range of health issues, visit the theatres, enjoy a range of complimentary therapies or even try tai chi.

Specialist stands, manned by experts will cover dementia, cancer, alcohol misuse, emergency care, maternity, physiotherapy and much more.

Visitors will enjoy free parking, and should make their way to the rear of the hospital, to the North West Regional Spinal Injuries Centre. Our annual general meeting will also be taking place in this unit, in the MDT room from 12-1pm. All members of the public are welcome to attend.

At 11am, the new Garden of Reflection will be officially opened and again, all are welcome. The garden has been created with help from local charities, and creates a quiet space for patients, families and staff to enjoy.
Therese Patten, Director of Strategy, said: “The Open Day is a chance for us to meet the local community in a fun and relaxed setting. Often we only see people when they are unwell, or worried about loved ones. The Open Day will give us the chance to talk about our services and show off some of the great improvements which have taken place this year. We look forward to welcoming as many local people as possible on the day!”
