We want every breast care patient to have the best possible experience when they come to hospital.
That’s why we are building a state-of-the-art £5.3 million Breast Care Centre at Ipswich Hospital. It will mean we can give our patients an environment to match the exceptionally high standards of care we already provide.
The new centre, which now has planning approval, will bring together all elements of breast care under one roof – the breast clinic, the imaging department and breast screening – making visits easier for our patients.
More than £4.4 million has already been secured towards the overall cost through donations to The Blossom Appeal and NHS funding from East Suffolk and North Essex NHS Foundation Trust, who run Ipswich Hospital. The new centre is due to open in 2022.
