Open Day 2010—Saturday 8 May, 11am–3pm
21 April 2010
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 attended last year’s Open Day and the final line-up of attractions for this year’s event has now been confirmed.
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 including our children’s operating theatres and our day surgery centre, health advice and information, live music, a hospital food tasting and much, much more.
There is a chance to win a £100 M&S voucher in our Cleaning Challenge—taking place all day in the Academic Atrium on the lower ground floor—and visitors can enjoy delicious free pastries and mini cupcakes from 11am on the 1st floor courtesy of our partners Maison Blanc.
A major attraction for children will be the Teddy Bear Hospital which will be taking place all day in the Kids’ Zone on the ground floor—children can bring along their favourite teddy or doll for a health check thanks to medical students from Imperial College London.
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 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.
