Open day at Salisbury District Hospital, where you can get a teddy health check

Your child can take their favourite toy to Salisbury District Hospital for a health check.

It’s all part of an open day at Salisbury District Hospital. It’s opening its doors on Saturday, 22nd July, to let everyone in the community experience life in the hospital and find out how it provides care for people in Wiltshire – and beyond.

See demonstrations, tour the hospital, and check out emergency service vehicles. Visitors can also learn about careers in healthcare and how the hospital works hard to protect our environment.

Taking place from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm, there will be army medics taking you back to WWII, reflecting on how caring for the wounded has changed over time, and there will be a chance to meet the team behind the construction of our new ward.

Most importantly, bring your favourite toy, teddy or T-Rex with you for a full health check by the hospital children’s health team.

It’s a fun and educational event for all; ice cream and food will be available.

The good news for parents is there’s free parking!
