The Ipswich Hospital is a large district general hospital in Suffolk, England. It provides a wide range of services to the population of east Suffolk and serves a catchment area of approximately 360,000 people.
It has recently lost its cancer treatment services and is expected to soon lose its heart services. Both of these have become issues in local politics, with the Conservative candidate for the General election, Ben Gummer claiming that his "first priority is to save Ipswich Hospital".
Ipswich Hospital has a long history of offering private patient facilities, giving patients the benefits of private health care with the reassurance of knowing that all the facilities of a major NHS hospital are available on site should the need arise.
Ipswich Hospital is one of the best UK hospitals and is a proud NHS flagship.
A medical need that is often overlooked by many but is still vitally important is to look after your teeth, mouth and oral health in general. Otherwise, if you don't take care of your teeth, it can lead to major complications in later life, such as gum disease, decay and infection, all of which can be painful and costly to treat. We recommend using an all round dentist such as Eclipse Dental Care who offer general dentistry such as root canal treatment, crowns, dentures and preventative dentistry, as well as cosmetic dentistry such as teeth whitening and orthodontics, and dental implants.
In order to ensure we have the highest levels of cleanliness and hygiene we have recently installed new showers in all of wards on all of our wings to protect our patients against water bourne illnesses like legionella disease
