FORMER staff from a Portsmouth hospital are being invited to attend the official opening of a £18.6m health facility.

St Mary’s Community Health Campus, in Milton Road, Milton – which welcomed its first patients last December – will be opened by Dr Jim Hogan, the chief clinical officer for the Portsmouth Clinical Commissioning Group.

Dr Hogan wants to help show off the campus by offering tours at the opening to any former staff – whether they are retired or working elsewhere in the NHS or another sector.

The campus has been built on around one-third of the former St Mary’s Hospital site,with £17.1m of Department of Health funding.

Services include a new out-patients’ department, a midwife-led maternity centre, sexual health services and chronic disease management.

The opening ceremony takes place on Thursday, October 18, from 2.30pm to 4pm.

To attend call (023) 9268 5223 or email by 4pm on Friday, October 12.
