NCH&C’s state-of-the-art, therapy-led unit will open in 2024 and provide a supportive and comfortable environment for 48 patients at NCH&C's Norwich Community Hospital site. Healthcare will be delivered by a multidisciplinary team of clinical professionals dedicated to patient recovery and well-being.
Utilising the latest therapy and rehabilitation technology and practices, the unit will play a key role in the commitment to delivering patient-centred care in Norfolk and Waveney by supporting patients moving from local acute hospital settings back into the community.
We invited patients, families, carers, NCH&C staff, and colleagues in the local health and care system to submit their suggestions for a name for the new unit. Thank you to everyone who made a suggestion.
We whittled a longlist of over 100 names down to just six and asked you to vote for your favourite.
Cedar Therapy Unit
Chestnut Therapy Unit
Coppice Therapy Unit
Juniper Therapy Unit
Oak Therapy Unit
Willow Therapy Unit
And the winner is…
By a considerable margin, the winning name is Willow Therapy Unit.
Thank you again to everyone who suggested a name or voted for their favourite shortlisted name!
