The Ipswich Hospital NHS Trust: various procedures and a real spirit of solidarity
A strong commitment to quality patient healthcare and comfort at the Suffolk Hospital
With about 8,000 people congregating each day on a 46 acre site, the Ipswich hospital is not unlike a small town. Carers, nurses and surgeons benefit from the help of more than 400 local volunteers who generously give their time for staff and patients. The hospital also boasts its own radio station, Hospital Radio Ipswich, run by some of the volunteers, along with a band, The Ipswich Hospital Band, the majority of whose members are staff. This band has successfully raised many thousands of pounds towards health-related causes and charities.
At Ipswich, all patients can look forward to being looked after in an environment characterized by a strong set of principles, rooted in basic human compassion – staff who are cheerful, friendly, kind and understanding, able to reassure those in their care and make them feel safe. What’s more, our skilled teams are constantly striving to improve their performance.
