STRUCTURE: A new hospital on the Norfolk coast has opened its doors to the first patients.

The minor injuries unit, imaging department and administrative offices are the first services to move into the Cromer and District Hospital with others following over the next two weeks. The old hospital buildings will be demolished.

The new hospital has been largely funded by two legacies which paid for £12.7m of the £15m cost.

Services at the hospital now include abdominal aortic aneurysm screening, a weekly eye casualty clinic and, from June, bone density scanning and mammography. 

However, all endoscopy and any surgery requiring a general anaesthetic is now being carried out at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.
