A battlefield ambulance will be among the attractions at Tameside General's community open day.

The heavy duty vehicle will be brought in by the 207th Manchester Field Hospital and will be situated near a recreation of a First World War field hospital, which will be put up to mark the centenary of the conflict.
The event on September 21, from 11am to 3pm, will feature 35 exhibitors from healthcare services and organisations including the police and fire service.

A DJ will entertain throughout the day with stage acts including a local dance group and brass band, refreshments and rides and free ice cream for children.

Hospital chief executive Karen James, said it will be a great day for families.

She said: “We are really proud to be holding our first open day at Tameside Hospital.

"It will be a day of fun and information for the whole family.

“As we serve a community of 250,000 people across Tameside and Glossop , our open day is the perfect opportunity for the local community to come and see what services we offer, look inside an ambulance, chat to some of our staff and have some fun and learn some fun health facts as well.”
