DUDLEY residents can meet The Dudley Group Hospital’s vascular experts and get a behind the scenes tour next week.

Teams from Imaging, Pathology, Cardiology and Medical Photography will be on hand along with specialists from across the Black Country Vascular Network (BCVN) to answer questions at the event at Russells Hall Hospital on Tuesday.

Guests will also be taken on a tour of the Trust’s state-of-the-art endovascular suite.

Chief Executive Paula Clark, said: "This event will allow access to areas of the hospital not normally seen by patients, carers and their families and give them the opportunity to talk to consultants from Russells Hospital, New Cross Hospital and Walsall Manor Hospital about the way vascular services are being redesigned.

"The work of our diagnostic teams is integral to the successful treatment of our patients; this event will showcase some of the latest techniques used by the Trust.”

The event takes place between 5.30pm and 8pm, with registration from 5pm, in the Clinical Education Centre in C Block.

Places are limited and anyone wishing to attend should call Helen Board on 01384 321124 or email Helen.board@dgh.nhs.uk
