Scarborough Hospital holds open day and Trust AGM
Scarborough Hospital is once again opening its doors to the public this September on behalf of York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. The venue has been chosen to give an exclusive insider look at some of the hospital departments.
The open day will give patients and local residents the opportunity to explore areas of the hospital not normally open to the public and to find out more about the Trust’s services. It will be held on Thursday 18 September between 2.30 - 5.00pm.
Patrick Crowley, Chief Executive, said: “We hope as many people as possible will take the opportunity to find out more about who we are and what we do. There will be displays by hospital departments and behind the scenes guided tours where people can look around areas of the hospital not normally seen by the public.”
Tours are being offered of the endoscopy, sterile services and estates departments and visitors to the open day can also get the first peek of the hospital’s newly refurbished Maple 1 ward prior to it coming into service.
Information stands will provide an insider’s guide to some of the hospital’s more specialised services such as rheumatology, diabetes, stroke, orthodontics and speech and language, amongst others.
For those interested in opportunities and careers in the NHS there will be recruitment and specialist staff on hand to offer advice. The Trust’s directors will also be around to answer any questions.
To complement the day people are invited to the hospital chapel for ‘More Tea Vicar’ – free refreshments with hospital chaplain the Reverend Martin Doe.
The open day will be followed by the Trust’s annual general meeting at 5pm which is open to all. Here people will be able to hear more from the Trust’s Chairman and chief executive and directors who will present the annual report and accounts, summarising the past year and giving an overview of future plans.
