Temporary disruption to visitor car park at Ipswich Hospital

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, below). The units are helping us to deliver our interventional radiology service to patients.

There are currently two mobile units outside the Trauma and Orthopaedic department at the south end of the hospital.

Later this month, one of the units is moving location on site while the other unit is leaving the site and being replaced by a new one. Both will be resituated in car park F (the visitors’ car park outside the main outpatients block, pictured) where there is close access to the hospital outpatients’ department.

We are arranging for power and drainage supplies to be added to car park F to serve the units. This work is due to start Monday (12 October). It means approximately eight disabled car parking spaces will be out of action for approximately two weeks.

Once the drainage and power works are complete and the units are in place, some of the disabled parking spaces will reopen. A small number of other visitor parking 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 the disruption is as limited as possible and we apologise for the inconvenience.

The footpath will diverted for pedestrians.

The area outside 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.
