Each room is named after a healthcare pioneer. They were chosen by Dr Suresh Patel, a highly respected retired GP and member of the ECC’s Council, and voted for by our staff.

The Blamey room is named after Professor Roger Blamey, a breast surgeon at City Hospital. In 1982, his research resulted in the publication of the Nottingham Prognostic Index (NPI) which is now the predictive index used all over the world to guide the best combination of surgery and other therapies and as a basis for discussing choices with patients.

Professor Blamey established one of the country’s first breast screening programmes in Nottingham, building such a strong reputation that Nottingham became the leading training centre for the national screening programme introduced in 1988.
