Buckinghamshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust (BHT) and are celebrating the NHS’s 70th birthday by inviting the public, staff, friends and family to an open day festival and joint annual general meeting (AGM) at Stoke Mandeville Hospital on Saturday, 28 July, from 11am-3pm.
The open day will let people go behind the scenes at the hospital and enjoy live entertainment, food and free fun activities for the whole family.
A central health fair will feature information stands by many of the Trust’s clinical departments as well as other health and care partners, such as Healthy Minds Bucks, giving the public a closer look at what services are available to them locally. There will be mini-health checks available alongside information on how people can keep themselves and their families fit and healthy.
Visitors will be able to go behind the scenes by booking onto tours, including tours of the mortuary and day surgery at Stoke Mandeville Hospital. There will also be a number of activities for children including a teddy bear trail through the hospital, with prizes to be won. Festivalgoers can also enjoy a variety of performers including local band OMJ who will be playing jazz through ages, transporting people from the 1940s through the past 7 decades to the present.
The joint AGM is planned to run from 11.45am to around 12.30pm. This is also open to the public who will be able to hear about BHT and the CCG’s work over the last year.
