UH Bristol opens its doors this Saturday for Bristol Doors Open Day 2014

This Saturday University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust (UH Bristol) will be opening three parts of its hospital estate as part of Bristol Doors Open Day 2014. The newly refurbished and extended Bristol Haematology and Oncology Centre and the Central Health Clinic, home of Bristol Sexual Health Centre, will be open for members of the public to explore. Pre-booked tours are also available of two new wards currently under construction at the Bristol Royal Infirmary.

Deborah Lee, Deputy Chief Executive of UH Bristol, says: "Bristol Doors Open Day is a great opportunity to showcase our hospital buildings to the people of Bristol and beyond. We're delighted to be opening up three very different parts of our estate and we hope that this provides an opportunity for the public to find out more about the variety of services we deliver here. Many of our highly skilled staff have volunteered to show the public round behind-the-scenes and talk about their roles in delivering these services."
