You don't need to be a patient to be admitted into Southend University Hospital today. The hospital is hosting an open day for members of the public.
It is taking place between 11am and 3pm, offering people the chance to go behind the scenes and find out more about the hospital's various departments.
There will be events throughout the day, including expert lectures, free health checks and tours of different parts of the hospital.
There will also be a summer fete to raise money for the hospital.
