THE public have a chance to look round the city’s new £18.6m health campus weeks before it opens.

The St Mary’s Community Health Campus, based at the St Mary’s Hospital site in Milton, Portsmouth, will open at the start of next year.

Staff will host six open days for the public from November 28 to December 2, and will be giving guided tours.

Catherine Webster, project manager for NHS Portsmouth, said: ‘This is being built for the public so we want them to know how their money has been spent, and to explain the thinking behind our planning.’

People who want to attend the open days should go to the main reception of St Mary’s at least 30 minutes before the tour session closes on the following dates: Monday, November 28 – 1.30pm to 3.30pm; Tuesday November 29 – 10am to midday; Wednesday November 30 – midday to 3pm; Thursday December 1 – 10am to midday and 4pm to 6.30pm and Friday December 2 – 10am to midday.
