A £5 million cancer centre at Cromer and District Hospital will open today (Friday 15 October).

The North Norfolk Macmillan Centre has been built to cope with an expected 200% increase in demand over the next decade. 

Currently most people in the area travel to Norwich for their care, something Macmillan and the NHS says was ‘tiring and time-consuming’.

The centre has five new chemotherapy chairs. Each chair will take six people a day.

The ward sees the old Davison Unit, which once housed a children's ward, totally renovated. Bosses say it represents a new era in cancer care for the region.
