Norwich Community Hospital

Norwich Community Hospital

Norwich Community Hospital is NCH&C’s largest site and can be found on Bowthorpe Road, off Dereham Road in the centre of Norwich.

The site brings together a diverse mix of our wide range of expert staff, including nurses, therapists and support staff, as they deliver a vast range of clinical services to local patients.

The hospital’s inpatient wards are housed within the modern Mulberry Unit. Here, expert staff on Beech Ward offer specialist stroke rehabilitation to patients, while colleagues on the Alder Ward offer general rehabilitation to their patients. The Mulberry Unit also boasts a therapy gym for patients to use as part of their care.
