Former PBL building at Colman Hospital in Norwich reopened as Birch Unit

Colman Hospital

The former Priscilla Bacon Lodge building at Colman Hospital in Norwich has been renamed Birch Unit and has reopened for category P2 patients today, Monday 15 April 2024.

Birch Unit will function as a temporary preparation ward ahead of the Willow Therapy Unit opening at Norwich Community Hospital later this year. It is initially open for up to 8 patients. This will increase to up to 14 from 22 April, and up to 20 from 29 April.

Patients will be admitted in accordance with the Willow Therapy Unit admissions policy, and the Birch Unit is run by staff recruited to work at the new unit when it opens. It is operating the same therapy-led model of care that will be provided at the Willow Therapy Unit.
