Ipswich Hospital is creating a new Surgical Assessment Unit by redesigning one of the current surgical wards. The SAU will care for and assess patients who likely have a surgical condition after being referred by their GP or the Emergency Department.
This building, based on the success of our existing Emergency Assessment Unit, will help to reduce unnecessary hospital admissions and help patients to return home sooner. This will improve patient experience and create a better environment for patients and staff.
The SAU will open later this year.Back to top
