Hearing testing at Cromer is currently carried out cramped facilities. The improvements will include disabled access, testing facilities for children aged five and over, and a better working environment for hospital staff.

Dr John Fitzgerald, head of audiology at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital NHS Trust, welcomed the investment in audiology at Cromer.

“This investment is great news for our north Norfolk patients and the Bernstein legacy will bring real improvements to the Audiology facilities at Cromer. These services are vital for people with hearing problems and both patients and staff will soon be able to take advantage of much improved facilities, “ said Dr Fitzgerald.
