Cromer Hospital will be opening its doors to the public from 11am to 4pm on Saturday 18th October 2014. The open day event is free and will enable visitors to see the Hospital facilities first hand, have the opportunity to find out more about their own health and take part in a variety of activities.

At 10:00am a stone will be unveiled to commemorate the successful completion of the new Cromer Hospital in March 2012 and recognise the generous bequest of Sagle Bernstein.

Anna Dugdale, Chief Executive of Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust commented: “We are delighted to be unveiling the stone in recognition of Sagle Bernstein who made all this possible and it is great to mark the completion of the new build at Cromer.”

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 bear to the ‘Well Teddy Clinic’.

Helen Lloyd, Cromer Operational Manager said; “We love opening our doors to the public so that people can see what good work goes on at the hospital. It is also a chance to see what happens behind the scenes. There will be something for every family member from activities for the children to enjoy or information for those looking to begin a career in healthcare.”

Visitors can also find out more about blood transfusions, looking after their skin, and find out how good they are at washing their hands by undertaking the ‘Glo and tell’ test.

There will be free entry to the event with no need to book, plus free car parking as well as refreshments and cakes made by ‘Trust Treats’ on sale.

Note to editors:
Media are invited to a photo opportunity at 10am at Cromer Hospital for the unveiling of the stone.
