Quality of Care
The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital is a 1,100 bed teaching hospital with state-of-the-art facilities for modern patient care. We work closely with the University of East Anglia’s Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences to train health professionals and undertake clinical research. We also run Cromer and District Hospital on the north Norfolk coast and this hospital was redeveloped in a £15 million scheme, opening in March 2012.
Our staff of more than 7,000 treat nearly a million patients each year from Norfolk, neighbouring counties and further afield. Our patients are referred to us by around 100 local GP practices but also from other acute hospitals and from GPs around the country.
We have a range of more specialist services such as cancer care and radiotherapy, orthopaedics, plastic surgery, ophthalmology, rheumatology, children’s medicine and surgery, and specialist care for sick and premature babies.
We have world class facilities, highly skilled staff and low infection rates. Our patients rate us highly on quality of care and having friendly, approachable staff.
