A 90 foot cave and cave and rescue vehicles, a life Education Bus for children and a chance to find out how they make wounds look so realistic in the movies were just some of the star attractions at Airedale Hospital’s open day. Hundreds of people of all ages turned out to the event staged in a marquee and the education centre at the hospital. Other highlights of the day were the pets as therapy (PAT) dogs, fitness taster sessions; a chance to get your blood pressure and height and weight checked; a fire engine and ambulance; hospital tours; a chance to taste hospital food and test out new patient menus and a challenge to try surgical techniques with a simulator.
