Anyone live or work in the East Anglia area?

  1. Hello everyone! Just wanted to know if anyone lives or works in the East Anglia area. Are there many hospitals in that area?

    I have a friend who is employed at Lakenheath AFB and hoping to visit this summer .....and wanted to visit some of the local hospitals while I am there site-seeing.

    Appreciate any information. Thanks!

    Hello funnygirl_rn, not much response yet. The nearest centres of population with district sized hospitals would be Cambridge, Norwich, and Ipswich. I trained at the Norfolk and Norwich hospital in the late 70's, but from memory, Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge would be nearest to Lakenheath. They are fairly prestigious in the UK, and have a good website. Mental health will be Fulbourn hospital, I think, but the name of the NHS Trust that will manage it may well be different. Hope this helps.

    Hi DonMurray. Wow...thanks so much for the information! Addenbrookes hospital will be on my list then. Will be staying in Bury St. Edmunds prior to heading to Lakenheath...figure it would be a good base to sight-see..and hopefully not too far from Beck Row. Happy Nurses Week!

    Such a small world. I live and work in California, but my home is Peterborough.

    I live there, so if you want to talk and see the places I will see what we can arrange.
