Festive fun and a star at UCLH
THE public were given a rare chance to find out what goes on behind the scenes at one of north London’s leading hospitals last week.
At its annual open day last Tuesday, University College London Hospital allowed visitors to meet frontline staff and tour a range of departments, including its institute of nuclear medicine, stroke unit and �2million day surgery unit.
A touch of celebrity magic was brought to the event by West End star Lee Mead, who officially switched on the Euston hospital’s Christmas tree lights.
There was also an opportunity to browse more than 35 interactive display stands and find out more about the latest treatments and services UCLH offers.
While visitors got to see the hospital’s robotic “surgeon” in action, as well having a personal health check and enjoying the benefits of massage as a complementary therapy.
