If you go down to Ormskirk and District General Hospital on Saturday 11 June you’re sure of a big surprise…

The hospital is hosting an Open Day for all the family from 10am, you can even bring your teddy along for a check up!

Other attractions on the day include tours behind the scenes in theatres, X-ray and linen amongst others. A life-size operation game, free health checks and advice, as well as complimentary therapies, a relaxation zone and much more.

Joining teams from around the hospital will be the fire service, police dogs and the coastguard. The catering team will be hosting a cake stall and a barbecue for those who are a bit peckish, and you can take a look behind the scenes in the radio studio.

The day is also great chance to come and meet staff from the hospital and chat to them in a relaxed and informal environment.

Sir Ron Watson, Chairman, Southport and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust encourages everyone to come along on the day: “This year’s Open Day is going to be bigger and better than ever.

“This is great chance for people to come along and chat with staff, take a look behind the scenes of the hospital and generally enjoy a good family day out.”

The Open Day will run from 10am to 4pm and there will be free parking for all on the day.
