Children's Hospital Open Day

Sunday 2 April 10.30am
Tingewick Hall, John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford

Please join us on Sunday 2 April to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Oxford Children's Hospital, highlighting the developments that have been made across Children's Services at Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

Designed with the needs of children and their families in mind, Oxford Children's Hospital opened its doors in 2007 and has since treated over 60,000 children every year from across the region and, in some specialties, from much further afield.

As one of only a handful of purpose-built dedicated children's hospitals, Oxford Children's Hospital was pioneering in bringing services under one roof benefiting staff, patients and families alike.

We would like to tell you more about all that has been achieved in the past decade and how it has enhanced patient and family care.

As our young patients continue to inspire us with their bravery and ambition we will also be looking forward to updating you with the plans for the 10th Anniversary celebrations.

You will hear from three brilliant speakers - two of our fantastic paediatric clinicians and a family who has spent a lot of time in the Children's Hospital - as well as hearing more about the 10th Anniversary Appeal.

The event is completely free to attend but numbers are strictly limited so please do book early via the link below.
