This year’s Open Day more popular than ever

23 May 2012

More than 2,100 people attended the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital Open Day 2012, setting a new record for this increasingly popular annual event.

More than 2,100 people attended the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital Open Day 2012, setting a new record for this increasingly popular annual event.

Television personality Anne Robinson officially opened the event, which featured regular favourites such as the Teddy Bear Hospital, live entertainment free health checks and exclusive behind-the-scenes tours of the hospital, but also some new attractions which proved popular with visitors.

The Trust’s new values—which were chosen following our ‘Who do you think WE are?’ consultation in February—were officially launched on the day and visitors were able to contribute to a graffiti wall which was turned into an original piece of art during the event. 

Also popular was the Careers Event which attracted almost 350 young people who were interested in finding out about what careers are available in the NHS and the different ways they can get started.
