Staff at Ysbyty Ystrad Fawr in Ystrad Mynach have invited the public to an open day at the hospital on Friday June 13 from 10am – 3pm.
The open day will be an opportunity to find out more about the services provided, and to get a glimpse behind the scenes.
Staff representatives from every department in the hospital will be on hand to talk to visitors and guided tours of departments will also be available.
Hospital manager, Trish Edwards, said: “Hospitals can be intimidating places and most people will be unaware of the range of services in Ysbyty Ystrad Fawr unless they actually need them, so I think people will be really surprised.
“Our open day will give the public a great opportunity to pop in and meet the staff and chat informally. We are also hoping that schools will come along too, there are so many careers available in the NHS so youngsters may be interested in finding out more about possible careers.
“People will also get a chance to look behind the scenes in pharmacy, maternity and theatres if these are areas that interest them.”
