Event description

Description

Please Note that these tours / visits begin and end at Cambridge Academy for Science and Technology NOT at the hospitals. There is NO CHECK-IN FACILITY at the hospitals: you will be transported between the Academy and the hospitals (and back) by complimentary coach.

Addenbrooke's Operating Theatre

An opportunity for children (and adults) to visit a real operating theatre in Addenbrooke's Hospital. Scrub up like a surgeon and learn about the team and equipment that make safe operations possible.

OR

Cambridge Research Facility

At the Cambridge Clinical Research Centre we provide state of the art clinical research facilities to support world class research in a wide range of clinical conditions in patients of all ages. Come and have a cup of tea and a chat with our research nurses to find out more about the translational research that has directly benefitted patients here.

OR

Royal Papworth Hospital - Healthcare Scientist Experience

Healthcare scientists are essential to 80% of decisions made in determining what could be wrong with a patient. Meet real life healthcare scientists at our interactive event and discover how science helps diagnose diseases, including a tilt test, the “body box”, and our human race track! Suitable for all ages.

OR

Royal Papworth Hospital - Theatre Experience

See inside one of the UK’s newest operating theatres. Meet the team members involved in cutting-edge surgery and experience a variety of work stations including chest opening, internal defibrillation, airway, and gown and gloving. Nothing graphic will be shown. Suitable for all ages.


Please note that as each tour/visit takes just under two hours for the round trip so you cannot book tours for yourself that are adjacent to each other, as you will not be back from the previous tour in time to check in.

In addition, we are restricting visits to Royal Papworth Hospital to one per person (ie you are not able to book yourself on both Royal Papworth Tours), as we expect there to be unprecedented demand for these tours. Anyone double booking themselves will be removed from one of the tours in order to make room for someone else. We check names of those registering very carefully. Thank you in advance for your understanding.

Restrictions: no age restriction but children attend these tours at parents' discretion. No unaccompanied under 14s.

Total time of each tour from check in and including travel to and from the venue is 1 hour and 45 minutes.

Complementary coaches kindly sponsored by AstraZeneca
