The building, which saw the refurbishment and extension of a disused ward, has been named the North Norfolk Macmillan Centre.

Facilities of the centre 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 in dermatology, urology, vascular surgery and pain management.

LSI have worked closely with Macmillan Cancer Support and Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals (NNUH) to develop the proposals for the extension and refurbishment of the existing Davison Unit.

With an envisaged 10,000 outpatient appointments taking place annually this will relieve the pressure on the other service providers locally and create new employment opportunities.
