Open Day 2018

Hospital open day 2018

The 2018 Hospital Open Day will be taking place on Saturday, 8 September 2018 from 10.30am to 3.30pm at Southampton General Hospital with hundreds of activities and stalls on offer throughout the day.

The Open Day is a fantastic day for all the family to find out more about the hospital and UHS, the services we provide, the amazing opportunities available and ground-breaking work taking place.

The theme this year will be Health Hero Academy through the years and give visitors the chance to not only pick up new skills and have fun, but find out more about the history of University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust, as well as our plans for the future.

Writing competition for ages 11 to 16

As part of NHS70 celebrations, we would like to invite children and young people aged 11 to 16 to write no more than 300 words on what they envision for the NHS in the future and how things may change. This could be a story, a poem or even a blog post… anything they can think of! All of the entries will be displayed at the open day and the winners announced.

The deadline for entries is 3 September 2018. You can email your entries to or post them to Mailpoint 18, Trust Management Offices, Southampton General Hospital, Tremona Road, Southampton, SO16 6YD for the attention of Emma Abdulaal, Communications.

More information is available on the letter available for download to the right of this page.
