  • Directions to the event
  • University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (UCLH) is holding a festive open event on Tuesday 7 December.

    In keeping with the festive season, there will be mince pies, a performance from the award-winning Maria Fidelis School Gospel Choir and carol singing accompanied by the Salvation Army band. The UCLH Christmas tree lights will also be switched on by West End star Lee Mead.

    Visitors at the event will have the opportunity to meet staff from University College Hospital (UCH) and the trust's five specialist hospitals. They will also be able to take behind-the-scenes tours of clinical departments. Health checks will also be available.

    UCLH chairman Richard Murley said: "This event allows us to raise the profile of the trust and the services we provide not only amongst the local community in Camden, but also to our partner organisations. It also gives us the opportunity to update current and future healthcare professionals on new research and treatments that we are undertaking at UCLH."

    The event will feature around thirty five interactive display stands including representatives from the emergency services, infection control and surgical specialities. Visitors will also have the chance to learn more about new developments at the trust, such as the new cancer centre which is due to open in 2012.

    The event is being held at University College Hospital, 235 Euston Road and is open to patients, members of the public, governors, students and a wide variety of health professionals.

    It will take place from 3.30pm - 6.00pm and a warm invitation is extended to UCL staff. There is no need to book in advance for this event, although spaces on the departmental tours are limited and on a first-come-first-serve basis. For further information, please click on the link above.
