A £12.5m endoscopy unit has moved a step closer for West Norfolk patients.
The new building has just got planning permission at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn as part of a modernisation programme and should open next spring.
Dr Shailesh Karanth, Gastroenterologist Consultant at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital King’s Lynn NHS Foundation Trust said: “This is an exciting development for our team. The new unit will modernise our facilities for patients, their families and staff and will enable all endoscopies to take place in one unit.”
Caroline Shaw CBE, Chief Executive of The Queen Elizabeth Hospital King’s Lynn NHS Foundation Trust added: “This is good news for our patients and staff – and is one of a number of important projects underway to modernise our hospital. Alongside this, we’re continuing to progress our work to bring a new hospital for King’s Lynn and West Norfolk.”
