LO­CAL res­i­dents are in­vited to South­port and Formby District Gen­eral Hospi­tal for its be­hindthe-scenes Open Day.

The event will take place on Satur­day, Septem­ber 8, be­tween 11am and 4pm,

Vis­i­tors will see how staff would deal with a ma­jor emer­gency, can ask ex­perts about a range of health is­sues, visit the the­atres, en­joy a range of com­pli­men­tary ther­a­pies or even try Tai Chi.

Stands staffed by ex­perts will cover de­men­tia, can­cer, al­co­hol mis­use, emer­gency care, ma­ter­nity, phys­io­ther­apy and much more.

Vis­i­tors will en­joy free park­ing, and should make their way to the rear of the hospi­tal, to the North West Re­gional Spinal In­juries Cen­tre.

The an­nual gen­eral meet­ing will also be tak­ing place in this unit, in the MDT room from noon to 1pm.

All mem­bers of the pub­lic are wel­come to at­tend.

At 11am, the new Gar- den of Re­flec­tion will be of­fi­cially opened and again, all are wel­come.

The gar­den has been cre­ated with help from lo­cal char­i­ties, and cre­ates a quiet space for pa­tients, fam­i­lies and staff to en­joy.

Di­rec­tor of Strat­egy, Therese Pat­ten, said: “The Open Day is a chance for us to meet the lo­cal com­mu­nity in a fun and re­laxed set­ting.

“Of­ten we only see peo­ple when they are un­well, or wor­ried about loved ones.

“The Open Day will give us the chance to talk about our ser­vices and show off some of the great im­prove­ments which have taken place at the hospi­tal this year.

“We look for­ward to wel­com­ing as many lo­cal peo­ple as pos­si­ble!”
