People are being urged to share their views as the development of a new Norfolk hospital site is discussed next week.

In October last year, it was announced that the James Paget University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust would receive national funding through the Department of Health and Social Care to explore all options for the building of a new hospital as part of the Government’s Health Infrastructure Plan – one of 40 that will be built across the country by 2030.

The Gorleston-based hospital, which serves Great Yarmouth, Lowestoft and Waveney, will receive government funding to build a new hospital and health campus.

And next week, the trust's governors are set to hold a virtual "engagement event".

It is being held using Microsoft Teams from 6.30pm to 7.30pm next Tuesday, August 24.
