The site which helped make sure the most urgent surgery continued in West Norfolk during the Covid-19 pandemic is celebrating its first birthday.
Former private hospital The Sandringham Unit has benefited 4105 patients since opening last autumn.
The site, which is part of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital site at King’s Lynn, has also had positive feedback from patients and their loved ones.
Caroline Shaw, hospital chief executive, said: “It’s absolutely fantastic to celebrate the one-year anniversary of our acquisition of the former Sandringham Hospital. To have purchased the hospital and re-opened it as an elective surgical facility within four weeks at the height of the pandemic is a tremendous achievement and has significantly helped with our ongoing elective recovery.
“I’d like to say a big thank you to all of the teams who work in the Sandringham Unit for their commitment to delivering an excellent patient experience, as evidenced by the patient feedback we receive from multiple sources demonstrating the importance of superb facilities when it comes to delivering an outstanding patient experience.”
