Mayor welcomed to The QEH

Mayor of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk Carol Bower learned more about the area’s cancer services during a visit to The Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

Trust Chair Edward Libbey escorted Mrs Bower on a tour of The Macmillan Cancer Care and Treatment Centre and Shouldham Ward with Department Sisters Jayne Miller and Nicola Whales.

During her visit on Wednesday, September 27, Mrs Bower learned more about the treatment and care provided by the dedicated teams within Shouldham and the Macmillan Centre.

Mrs Bower also visited The West Norfolk Breast Care Unit, which was opened last year to provide a dedicated facility with new clinical and treatment rooms.

Mr Libbey also highlighted the stunning gardens created by Tesco Hardwick Community Champions and Lindsey Rasberry in memory of her husband Alan.


Mrs Bower said: “It was a pleasure to visit The Queen Elizabeth Hospital to see the first-rate care which is being provided to the people of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk.

“The doctors and nurses work incredibly hard to care for and support for the men and women who are battling against this dreadful disease.”

The visit to the unit was rounded off with tea and cakes.

Trust Chair Mr Libbey said: “We were honoured to welcome Mrs Bower to the Hospital and show her the high quality patient care provided by our committed medical and nursing teams.

“We are proud to be a part of West Norfolk and serve the needs of its residents. The culture within the hospital places an important focus on the community, so we were delighted to welcome Mrs Bower.”
