1 in 2 people will develop cancer in their lifetime. It is extremely likely that you or someone you care about has been or will be affected.
Early diagnosis (cancer diagnosed at stages 1 or 2) is vital – it gives patients more effective treatment options, improving their chance of survival. Currently, if you reside within North Norfolk and are suspected of having cancer, your diagnosis and treatment will take place at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital. However, we are delighted to announce that Summer 21 marked the opening of the new North Norfolk Macmillan Centre at Cromer Hospital. Patients residing in the towns and villages across North Norfolk will have speedy access to first-class diagnosis and treatment of cancer closer to their home. They will also be able to avoid the numerous lengthy journeys to the NNUH, often while feeling unwell. The new services available will include Prostate Biopsy, Chemotherapy and Oncology. The new Centre will also provide 20,000 clinic, diagnostic and treatment visits per year.
The wonderful generosity of the public and bequests to the CCAFH has enabled us to donate over £600,000 to purchase specialised equipment and furniture at the new cancer unit.
