Public gets to see behind the scenes for hospital open day and fete

The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital will be opening its doors to the public from 11am to 4pm on Saturday 20th June 2015 for its open day and fete.

A Dakota plane, part of the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight (BBMF), will be conducting a fly past at about 1.30pm.

Visitors will be able to see what goes on behind the scenes at the hospital, browse the fete stalls for cakes and crafts, enjoy the live music, or look around the careers fair. There will be free entry and free car parking on the day with any funds raised from the event going to the hospital’s charity.
Key attractions at the open day include the offer of a free NHS health check, finding out what goes on in an operating theatre, visiting the labs, making a plaster mould of your hand, meeting Fred the Pharmacy robot, taking part in traditional fete games or taking your teddy for an X-ray before joining Big C’s teddy bears’ picnic.

The 6th Regiment Army Air Corp (6AAC), 160 medical squadron and 3rd Battalion Royal Anglian Regiment will be attending the event. A team of army experts from 6AACwill be providing visitors the chance to experience a ride in a flight simulator, test their climbing skills with a mobile climbing wall or enquire about a career in the forces.
