Welcome

2018 Health Expo Hull and East Riding

It’s back! The annual Hull and East Riding Health Expo will take place for the third time on Thursday 5th July at the DoubleTree by Hilton hotel on Ferensway, Hull.

We’re holding the event slightly earlier this year to coincide with the 70th anniversary of the NHS. Organised by local NHS and health providers from across the region, the event will celebrate the health service journey since 1948, open your eyes to some of the amazing advances in local health care and technology, and serve to thank the people who make the NHS the success story it is today.

Visitors will be able to meet health experts face to face, ask questions, get advice, and find out more about support available to you in your local area. The more adventurous among you will be able to take part in games and activities to get the blood pumping, and the highlight of the 2018 event will be a special archive display of old photographs, health artefacts and memorabilia from years gone by.

The 2018 Health Expo will run from 10am and close at 7pm. Entry to the event is free. Refreshments will be on sale – please call in for as much or as little of the day as you are able.

Visit the Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust facebook page to see photographs from the 2017 event.
