Have summer fun in Thanet – and learn about health 

QEQM St Peters Road

Local people are being encouraged to attend a summer Health Fair at Margate’s Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother Hospital on Saturday 5 August.

Taking place alongside the League of Friend Summer Fete at the maternity entrance car park (St Peter’s Road) the Health Fair promises an array of information about health and wellbeing.

Entry is free for the event, which last from 10.30am to 1pm.

Those attending the event will be able to find out about our stoma and stroke services, community health, support for older people, including dementia care. And there will also be information for those wishing to find out about staying fit and healthy.

East Kent Hospitals’ event organiser, Mandy Carliell, said: “Running alongside the Summer Fete and its traditional entertainment, the Health Fair should prove to be very popular indeed.

“The day is ideal for anyone who wants information on how to stay healthy by, for example, quitting smoking or leading a healthier lifestyle. But the Health Fair will also be invaluable for anyone who would like more specialist advice covering stroke services, dementia or chemotherapy.”

Mandy added: “The Summer Fete and the Health Fair will give Thanet residents a great opportunity to have fun and also learn about local healthcare.”
