Health focus talk

FIND OUT about the services provided at Andover War Memorial Hospital and speak to staff who work there during a health focus talk being held by Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

A wide range of services, including day surgery, maternity, rehabilitation and hospice care, are available at Andover hospital.


Staff from the various departments will be available to discuss who they are and what they do during the event, which is taking place in Peaches Restaurant at the hospital on Tuesday 3 March. Refreshments will be provided from 6pm, with the talk getting under way at 6.30pm.


There will be an opportunity to find out interesting facts about the kitchens, porters and the domestic staff, as well as hear about the difference that the redevelopment of The Countess of Brecknock Hospice will make for both patients and staff.


Staff will also explain which surgical procedures are carried out at the hospital and you can hear about the activities that are available on Kingfisher Ward to help patients prepare to return home.



Health focus talks are free and an opportunity for patients and the public to hear hospital experts talk about their specialist area, meet the Trust’s management team and ask questions.
