Our 5 year plan is to develop strong specialist, academic and research opportunities within the Trust and University, to grow a large and diverse department providing staff with personalised and flexible working patterns to support their professional interests and development.

The Cotman Centre is a purpose built modern, light and airy building on a green field site which has been commended for its design and infrastructure by external assessors. It is in close proximity to not only the NNUH but also the Research Park, Innovation Centre and UEA campus with Sports Park, gym and pool.

Consultant workload is controlled by an innovative ‘pull’ system allowing choice to protect time dedicated to reporting, teaching, research and SPA activates.

Plans in digital pathology are being developed to aid flexible working, teaching and research.
