Free Health Checks at our Open Day

Updated: Mar 30

We will be throwing open our doors to local residents on  April 18th 2024, between 1000 and 1400. 

Our special event will take place in the John Pounds Centre sports hall, with tours offered of the clinical trials facility which is located on the first floor.  The event will also be offering health advice and free health checks. 

Research Nurse Lead, Johanna Mouland, says: “We’d really love people to come and ask us questions, and have a look around. Everything we do relies on volunteers. People who take part tell us they get a lot out of the experience, knowing they are helping improve healthcare for everyone.”

Organisers are particularly keen to raise awareness among ethnic groups.

Shipa Ahmed Khan, Health Inequalities Lead at Portsmouth Hospitals University NHS Trust, says:

“It’s really important that people from all ethnic backgrounds take part in research, because this ensures the safety and effectiveness of new drugs, treatments and interventions. Understandably, many people in the city are sceptical and don’t know much about research, so this is a chance to learn and start finding out a little more.”

If you have any questions, please contact us via the form on this website.
