Local cancer services
Local cancer services are provided at the James Paget University Hospital (JPUH) although patients may also travel to the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital or Addenbrookes in Cambridge to receive their treatment.
The quality of cancer services is assessed via the National Cancer Peer Review Programme. Following a review of a cancer service, a report is published providing information on the quality of cancer services provided by the clinical team at the hospital. The most recent report for each service can be found on the My Cancer Treatment website.
The reports available on My Cancer Treatment provide information to help you decide where to go for your cancer treatment, seek a second opinion or to find out more.
