Visitors can look behind the scenes at Cromer Hospital open day



Cromer Hospital is inviting the public to look behind the scenes on Saturday.

The open day will enable visitors to see the hospital facilities first hand, find out more about their own health and take part in a variety of activities.

People will be able to have 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.

Children will also have the opportunity to take their teddy bear to the 'well Teddy clinic' and follow the teddy bear stamp trail.

Cromer operational manager Iain Young said: 'We love opening our doors to the public so that people can see what good work goes on at the hospital.

He added: '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.
