Chelwest Open Day

On September 5th we at Hiyos took part in a brilliant open day at the West Middlesex University Hospital site. The open day celebrated being healthy and active, and ran an exciting programme of events for all ages.

Not only did we have our own stand to show people all the innovative things we’re doing at Hiyos, but also we sneaked up on others and pleaded with them to tell us about their work – and we managed to capture it on film! We’ve also included some useful links to services in your area.

Bear with us – the atmosphere was SO buzzy at the show, that you may need to give the volume dial a nudge…
