Norfolk hospital cancer appeal launched

Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital's NHS Foundation Trust has launched an appeal to raise £600,000. The money will be used to treat more cancer patients with a type of radiotherapy which reduces treatment times and also means some patients can be treated closer to home.

The money raised through the Targeted Radiotherapy Appeal will also be used to reconfigure some of the existing rooms in the Colney Centre and to provide state-of-the-art facilities for people undergoing internal radiotherapy.

The new facilities will also allow more patients to benefit from the treatment.
