Fun for all the family at QEH open day

More than 500 people enjoyed a tour and learning more about the Queen Elizabeth Hospital during a successful Open Day on Sunday.

Youngsters with their parents and grandparents had fun guessing who the famous patient is in the newly revamped X-ray along with taking their toys to special pop up Toy Hospital at Roxburgh Day Centre.

Families also had fun looking around the emergency vehicles, including the East of England Air Ambulance, Fire Service and the SERV blood bikes. Visitors were also given the chance to look around the newly developed areas such as the Breast Unit and also learned more about Waterlily Birth Centre and the Breast Unit.

Staff from departments across the hospital also took the opportunity to promote the hard work undertaken in West Norfolk’s busy acute hospital. They also took part in the Halloween themed Bedpan Challenge, which was won by Tilney Ward.

West Norfolk Mayor David Whitby officially opened the event with Hospital Chair Edward Libbey and Chief Executive Dorothy Hosein.

Mrs Hosein was delighted with the day’s success.

She said: “It has been a pleasure to see so many people, of all ages, to come and join this celebration with us.

“The hospital has been on a journey over the last few years and this is an ideal opportunity to share the hard work put in by our staff with the wider community.

“I would like to thank the staff who have given up their time to support this event along with the people who have put so much effort into creating such a successful day.”
