The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH) specialist breast cancer team urgently needs a larger, dedicated unit to provide even better, quicker and more dignified treatment to a predicted 7,000 local women each year and a small number of men (from 2019 and beyond).
The new centre will provide faster diagnosis and treatment. Same-day diagnostic tests combined with clinical and imaging assessment will mean patients only need to attend clinic once.

20 Rouen Road,
Please help us raise £800,000 to create a new, dedicated breast cancer unit at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.
- Over the past five years, the current breast cancer unit has seen an 80% increase in patient numbers (645 referrals per month in 2018, compared to 360 in 2012)
- This means the current breast cancer clinic is now unable to provide a same-day diagnosis service to all patients
- At the NNUH, we want to offer this service to all to reduce stress and anxiety for patients
- The technology and equipment a new unit would offer would provide diagnosis on the day, avoiding the need for patients to return for additional scans or for their results.
