A Norfolk hospital has opened a brand new £625,000 cancer support centre.
The Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) in King's Lynn formally opened the Cancer Wellbeing Support Centre on Wednesday after work on its garden was complete.
The centre first opened in April, however work has now been completed.
The state-of-the-art facility aims to be a welcoming space for patients to access services focusing on supporting people with the long-term impact of cancer.
From the facility the Macmillan Information and Support Service will provide services including general health and wellbeing advice, access to financial support, and patient support groups.
