Great Western Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust to invite local community to find out more about exciting hospital plans

Great Western Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is holding a community open day in July that will invite local people to visit the hospital, see some of the new developments and hear about exciting upcoming plans.

The open day will showcase everything from tours around the new Radiotherapy Centre, expansion land, new mobile diagnostic facilities, Urgent Treatment Centre and Energy Centre, information and engagement stands from teams across the Trust, interactive exhibitions and a chance to meet the people who provide all our local emergency services.

Guided tours around the Trust’s newest builds can be booked in advance, giving people the opportunity to hear more about how they were developed and the benefits they will bring to healthcare in Swindon and Wiltshire.

There will also be virtual tours available for those who want a behind-the-scenes look into some of the Trust’s busiest services.

Staff from different across the organisation will also be on hand to share information, updates and good news from their departments – shining a light on the real work Trust staff are doing every day.

There will be opportunity to meet the staff championing some of the local NHS’ biggest projects, with everything from ophthalmology to cancer services. There will also be time for younger visitors to find out about what it’s like to work in a hospital, with basic first aid, dressing and CPR simulation.

The Trust is pleased to have partnered with both Barnes Coaches and Nationwide Building Society on the community open day. People are invited to park at Nationwide on Pipers Way and be driven by coach to and from the hospital.

Kevin McNamara, Chief Executive, said: “We are really pleased that Covid restrictions have been lifted and we are once again able to invite local people back to our hospital.

“This is a really positive time for the organisation, and we have a number of great projects underway which will improve the care we can provide to our local growing and ageing population.

“We know lots of people will have questions about their local healthcare services and this community open day will be a real opportunity for people to see our plans and developments in person.”
