Come inside our operating theatre of the past, present and future

IMG_8396.JPGPlym Children’s Theatres will once again be opening its doors as part of the Trust’s NHS70 Open day on Saturday 16 June (10.00-14.00). This is a great opportunity for children and adults to come and find out more about what happens inside an operating theatre.

Once again, we will be running our Teddy Bear Hospital – so if you know of a teddy or toy who is in need of some medical attention, please bring them along to be checked over, bandaged, or even stitched back up by the experts. The teddy bear’s owners are welcome to help and there are reward stickers for the owners and patients.

Come inside our operating theatre of the past, present and future – showcasing the changes that there have been in caring for people having surgery over the 70 years that the NHS has been in existence. Visitors will be able to see how the equipment we use to keep patients safe during anaesthesia has improved. Find out more about the different job roles in an operating theatre team and how we work together to look after patients, you could even have a go at “scrubbing-up”.

Plymouth Kidzzz – the charity that supports Plymouth Children’s Theatres, will be offering the opportunity to get involved with some pebble art and there will be lots of other activities for children and adults.

Come along for a day of interactive fun and education for all the family. For more information and to book on to events or talks, please download our app:
