Public consultation on care for patients in rural Broadland

A public consultation has been launched regarding the proposed vision of care for patients in North Norfolk and rural Broadland. The consultation suggests options for patient facilities at Benjamin Court in Cromer and the development of a new Supported Care Service. 

If adopted, the proposed Benjamin Court Healthcare Unit would provide a health and community support hub comprising different types of beds and non-bed based NHS and voluntary sector services.
The unit could:

  • support patients and their family and carers to have the most comfortable and dignified end-of-life care;
  • help people achieve the best quality of life;
  • help people to remain living independently;
  • be an advice and support hub that brings together the best local healthcare and wellbeing organisations under one roof.

The consultation is being run by NHS North Norfolk Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and follows engagement with a steering group, Cromer Town Council and other local people.
The consultation document has now been published and is available on the CCG’s website or can be downloaded HERE. It will also be distributed widely across North Norfolk and rural Broadland.
An event where the public can have a say on the proposal will be hosted in Cromer during the consultation period with the exact date, time and location to be published in due course.
