Every year our staff of more than 7,000 provide acute hospital care to more than 822,500 people from Norfolk, from neighbouring counties and from further afield. Our patients are referred to us by around 100 local GP practices but also from other acute hospitals around the country.
We provide a full range of acute clinical services, including more specialist services such as oncology and radiotherapy, neonatology, orthopaedics, plastic surgery, ophthalmology, rheumatology, paediatric medicine and surgery. We also work closely with the University of East Anglia’s Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences to train health professionals and undertake clinical research.
We have world class facilities, highly skilled staff and are rated highly by our patients for our quality of care. We were authorised as an NHS Foundation Trust on May 1 2008.
