A multi-million pound cancer treatment building to increase radiotherapy capacity at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital is set to open in the New Year.
The new £4.5m radiotherapy unit is set to increase capacity by a third when it is fully up and running.
Anna Dugdale, chief executive of the Colney hospital, told governors this week that building work had been completed. She added that the linear accelerator was almost finished, but it would take time to configure and calibrate the radiotherapy machine.
“It is really exciting and it is a really lovely building. It feels like a really nice space and it will open in January,” she said.
The new unit is next to the hospital’s Mulbarton ward and the development also includes a new orthovoltage treatment room. The building work has been carried out by R G Carter.
