Almost 1,700 visitors flocked to Chelsea and Westminster on Saturday May 10 2008 for our hospital Open Day.

This popular annual event just keeps getting bigger and better – this year’s attendance was more than 300 up on last year, despite the hot weather, and visitors were able to enjoy a wide range of attractions including the launch of the NHS 60th anniversary campaign, behind-the-scenes tours, health advice and information, live music, exercise classes, free fruit, a hospital food tasting and much, much more.

Local MP Sir Malcolm Rifkind joined in the fun while TV presenter Gaby Roslin was on hand to officially launch the NHS 60 campaign.

This year’s Open Day was held in partnership with Kensington and Chelsea PCT with generous sponsorship from Chelsea and Westminster Health Charity.
