Mobile treatment units at Ipswich Hospital are on the move and we apologise for some disruption to a visitor car park.
There are currently two mobile units outside the Trauma and Orthopaedic department at the south end of the hospital (pictured). The units are helping us to deliver our interventional radiology service to patients.
Tomorrow (Saturday), a new replacement unit is arriving, but will be sited in car park F (the visitors car park outside the main outpatients block, pictured) where there is close access to the hospital outpatients’ department. The other unit from the south end will also be moving to car park F soon.
Eight disabled car parking spaces have been out of use while power and drainage supplies are added to car park F and we will be closing approximately half of the car park from this evening (Friday) to make space for the new unit delivery, which will be transferred on a crane.
Most of the car parking spaces will reopen Saturday, but a small number of spaces will then be unavailable as traffic in the car park is diverted to keep everybody safe.
Our teams are working through plans to make sure disruption is as limited as possible and we apologise for the convenience.
The footpath will be diverted for pedestrians.
The Area out the Trauma and Orthopaedic department is being redeveloped as part of the creation of a new Urgent Treatment Centre and Emergency Department at the hospital. The mobile units will be on site for some time to keep the clinical service running safely, and we are moving the units to make sure these works can start on time.
