North Norfolk Macmillan Centre, Cromer Hospital

Macmillan Cancer Support and Norfolk & Norwich Hospitals Charity are working together to improve the lives of people living with cancer at Cromer & District Hospital. This includes working with Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust to build a build a state-of-the-art multi-million pound centre at Cromer & District Hospital.

The North Norfolk Macmillan Centre will mean people living with cancer in and around Cromer may no longer have to travel to Norwich for clinics, diagnostics and treatment, and be able to access cancer treatment and support closer to home. 

Macmillan Cancer Support has been working with Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust to develop proposals for the centre.

The building, which will see the refurbishment and extension of a disused ward, will be called the North Norfolk Macmillan Centre.

The centre, on the site of the former Davison Unit, will include:

  • Six chemotherapy treatment chairs with capacity to treat up to 36 patients a day.
  • Three new clinic rooms and two new minor procedure rooms, creating an additional 10,000 outpatient appointments annually. 
  • A Macmillan cancer information and support centre.
  • The new unit will also free up space in the main Cromer Hospital building to deliver an extra 600 surgical procedures including in orthopaedics, urology, vascular surgery and pain management.

The majority of funding for the North Norfolk Macmillan Centre will come from Macmillan Cancer Support, which is providing up to £2.2 million. There’s a small chance we’ll raise more than we need for this project and if this happens, or in the unlikely event that the project does not proceed, then your gift will be used to provide much needed help and support to people affected by cancer in the Norfolk area or on other vital Macmillan services.

Norfolk and Norwich Hospitals Charity is contributing £1.5million to the project and the remaining money is coming out of NNUH Trust funds.
