Addenbrookes Hospital

Addenbrooke's Hospital is holding an open day today giving people the chance to go behind the scenes.

The trust is 250 years old this year and is marking the milestone with a calendar of events.

The hospital will be opening its doors to the community from 11am-4pm today, to look behind the scenes and explore the story of Addenbrooke's past, present and future. 

Visitors can look back at the hospital's archive from 1766 at the people and events that have made it what it is today, have a sneak peak at the development of the Cambridge Biomedical Campus, see the future for science, research and innovation and look into how a busy hospital works today.
