Our annual Open Day will this year be held at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital between 11am and 3pm on Saturday 8 May.

More than 1,500 people flocked to last year’s Open Day and 88% of visitors said they would recommend the event to their friends and family.

Visitors to this year’s Open Day will be able to enjoy a wide range of attractions including behind-the-scenes tours of hospital departments, health advice and information, live music, a hospital food tasting and much, much more.

BBC newsreader and presenter Sophie Raworth will be carrying out the official opening of the hospital’s revamped Assisted Conception Unit during the Open Day as a thank you to Chelsea and Westminster where she has had her children.

There will also be an opportunity to see our new mobile health clinic which will be in a prominent location at the front of the hospital—this brand new facility is already providing health screening for football fans attending Chelsea home games at Stamford Bridge.

The main aim of our annual Open Day is to place the Trust at the heart of our community by opening the doors of the hospital to local people including Foundation Trust members.

The theme of this year’s Open Day is ‘Your hospital, your health, your say’ which reflects the fact that Chelsea and Westminster belongs to all who use its services, live locally or work at the hospital.

Trust staff have been invited to take part in the Open Day, together with charities whose activities benefit directly the patients and staff of Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and our partner organisations in the NHS, social care and education.

The Open Day is made possible by our Foundation Trust Council of Governors—including elected representatives of patients, members of the public and hospital staff—which is funding the event as sole sponsor. The Trust would like to thank the Governors for their support.
