Services at Cromer and District Hospital have been cut back due to the adverse weather and dangerous driving conditions.

The Minor Injuries Unit has been closed this morning (Thursday, March 1), and outpatient clinics and procedures have been cancelled.

UPDATE: Minor injuries unit at Cromer hospital re-opens after Beast from the East forced closure

A statement on the hospital’s website said: “Cromer and District Hospital Minor Injuries Unit is closed this morning and we will provide an update later.

“Renal dialysis running as normal and radiology is open.

“Outpatient clinics and procedures have been cancelled today and patients have been contacted.

“If patients need advice on urgent health issues they should contact NHS 111.”

The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust announced via Twitter earlier that phlebotomy services were also out of action as blood samples could not be transported to Norwich.

However, they later added that phlebotomy patients were being seen this morning.

The Minor Injuries Unit has since reopened.
