Cromer Community And Hospital Friends
CCAHF purchases equipment for local hospitals. In 2020 we are fundraising £350,000 for equipment & furniture for a new cancer unit in Cromer.
A £4.15 million state-of-the-art cancer care and support centre is being built at Cromer and District Hospital. In the 2015 local cancer strategy, potential demand for cancer services within the Trust was forecast to increase by over 200% over ten years. Currently most people from the Cromer area have to travel to Norwich for treatment and the new centre will enable more people to access cancer treatment and support closer to home. The centre will include: · Six chemotherapy treatment chairs with capacity to treat up to 36 patients a day. · Three new clinic rooms and two new minor procedure rooms, creating an additional 10,000 outpatient appointments annually. · A Macmillan cancer information and support centre. Cromer Community & Hospital Friends is fundraising to raise £350,000 for the equipment & furniture for the new cancer unit at Cromer Hospital.
