Llandudno residents are being offered a behind-the-scenes look at a day in the life of the NHS in North Wales.

Llandudno General Hospital is opening its doors with an open day on Saturday, November 30 between 10am and 2pm, giving local residents a chance to find out more about services available in the town.

The open day includes a tour of the hospital, led by Phil Rathbone and featuring Llandudno Mayor Cllr Angela O’Grady, who will also announce the winner of a competition for local schools to design a health promotion poster.  

Free health and wellbeing classes will also be hosted at the hospital, including a free Tae Kwon Do taster, a Wii Fit competition, and a morning yoga session.

NHS staff will also be on hand throughout the day to offer health information and advice, as well as details of how the hospital’s Minor Injuries Unit works. Visitors can even look around a working ambulance which will be stationed at the hospital for the day.

Matron Phil Rathbone said: “This is a great opportunity for people to get to know their local hospital better and learn about what they can do to stay healthy. I’m really looking forward to showing people some of the brilliant work we are doing.”

The open day also offers a chance to meet one of Llandudno’s community midwives, find out more about volunteering opportunities in the local area, and enjoy a cup of tea at the hospital’s Memory Café scheme, which provides support and assistance to people living with Dementia.
