Cromer Hospital open day shows off new facilities

The Cromer and District Hospital will be opening its doors to the public from 11am to 4pm on Saturday 20th October 2012. The open day event is free and will enable visitors to see the new facilities first hand, have the opportunity to find out more about their own health and take part in a variety of activities.

Chairman David Prior said: “We want to showcase the new building and demonstrate some of the excellent work that goes on within the hospital and give the public a chance to visit us on a day when they don’t have an appointment. All the activities are free and we have catered for all age groups.”

People will be able to try a range of activities such as having a go at a life-size 'Operation Game', find out what it's like to have a plaster cast and use the eye simulation glasses which demonstrate different eye conditions. Many of the activities will be educational and suitable for children. Young children will also have the opportunity to take their teddy to the ‘Well Teddy Clinic’.

Visitors can also find out more about eye health, looking after their skin, and get advice on listening devices from the 'Listen Here Bus'.

There will be free entry to the event with no need to book, plus free car parking.
