PEOPLE can have the rare opportunity to go behind the scenes at Queen Alexandra Hospital.

The hospital in Cosham is hosting its third annual open day on Saturday, October 1, from 11am to 3pm.

During the day visitors can look forward to tours around different departments, including pathology, day surgery and the eye department.

People will also have the chance to meet and talk to members of staff and volunteers who will be on hand to answer any questions.

David Rhind, chairman of the Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust, said: ‘The first two open days were big successes.

‘More than 1,000 people have already found out what goes on inside their hospital.

‘This year’s event will be better than ever with a range of tours and demonstrations. Come and see for yourselves the marvellous work that the hospital’s staff do for the people of Portsmouth, South East Hampshire and beyond.’

A range of information stands and activities will be on show in the main entrance and Education Centre, including rheumatology, paediatrics and maternity.
