Thanksgiving cathedral service for N&N
A public thanksgiving service is being held at Norwich Cathedral to mark the immense contribution the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital and its staff have made over the past 231 years.
The old Norfolk and Norwich Hospital is currently in the second phase of the hospital transfer to the £229 million complex at Colney and will be closed down by the end of this year.
And on Sunday October 13 at 3.30pm, a public service is being held at Norwich Cathedral, The Close, to mark the immense contribution the hospital and its staff have made over the past 231 years.
Hospital chaplain Rev Colin Reed said: We are very keen that members of the public, existing staff and former staff all get a chance to mark the last chapter in the old N&N’s eminent history and to look forward to a new and exciting chapter in the story of 21st century hospital care in Norfolk and Norwich.
Over the years the hospital has played a vital role in the lives and memories of so many hundreds of thousands of people and we’d be delighted to see people congregate to say farewell and thanks to the old hospital.
The Norfolk and Norwich Hospital site has been sold, subject to contract by the Department of Health to Persimmon Homes and they will take possession of the site in 2003.
