Scarborough Hospital plans first ever Open Day
Scarborough Hospital is preparing to throw open its doors to the public on Thursday 15 August for its first ever Open Day. This unique event will enable visitors to discover more about the daily workings of the hospital and the services provided.
Visitors will be able to explore stalls packed with interesting information on a variety of subjects; from nutrition and dietetics to resuscitation and physiotherapy. Anyone who has ever wondered what goes on in the Accident and Emergency department can have their questions answered by staff at the A&E stall, and have the chance to explore an ambulance.
Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists will be also on hand to talk about their jobs and explain how they help patients on the road to recovery. And if you are thinking of working for the NHS, take the time to visit the careers stall, where you will be able to discuss various career paths and get information on current vacancies.
Refurbishment work is currently being carried out on The Duke of Kent Ward and visitors will be able to learn more about this exciting project on the day. There will also be the chance to learn more about plans to develop the surgical areas in the future.
Learn more about the work of the Hospital Charity by visiting their stall. Current fundraising projects include the Snowdrop appeal, which aims to raise over £120,000 to build a new Bereavement Suite in the Maternity Unit.
Patrick Crowley chief executive of York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust who now runs Scarborough Hospital, said: “It’s the hospital’s first Open Day since becoming part of the York Trust and the chance to discover more about the hospital and the wider Trust. We’re hoping the people of Scarborough will come and learn more about the hospital and how it operates.”
The Open Day runs from 12 noon until 3pm and takes place in the main corridor of the Main Entrance.
