Bromley residents will soon have the opportunity to delve into the heart of the borough’s biggest hospital to find out more about what makes it tick.
The Princess Royal University Hospital (PRUH), in Farnborough Common, is holding an open day in July - as the trust looks to connect with the local community.
PRUH says the event is the “first of its kind in the borough” and is inviting residents to “discover the inner workings” of a busy hospital, while also finding out more about the health concerns of 2014.
Medical staff will be on-hand to offer advice and other staff members free to discuss hot topics such as the food served up to patients.
PRUH’s sister facility, King’s College Hospital (KCH) in Denmark Hill, which took control of the site last year, has hosting open days for many years and is said to have attracted over 2,500 visitors in the past.
Children’s ward matron Cavette Castillo recently transferred from KCH to PRUH and said: “I have been involved in the open day for a number of years at King’s.
“This event will give us an opportunity to show the people of Bromley all the fantastic work going on at our hospitals.”
The open day takes place on Sunday July 6, is free to attend, and runs between 11am and 3.30pm.
