Urgent Emergency Care Centre at Ipswich Hospital
The Urgent Emergency Care Centre will offer treatment for a range of urgent but not life-threatening conditions, freeing up the emergency department to focus on providing care for the most critically ill and seriously injured patients. A single front door for all walk-in urgent and emergency patients, making sure they are seen and treated by the right team.
With hospital specialists working alongside primary care clinicians. The build will include a new CT scanner which is part of an additional £3.2million investment in diagnostic technology (also includes a new MRI scanner now in place in our Diagnostic Imaging department).
This development will also pave the way for a new musculoskeletal department. A new suite of musculoskeletal services will be created by bringing together Rheumatology, Spinal Services and Trauma and Orthopaedics all under one roof – putting all our specialists in one place. It will provide a better environment for patients and staff in our landmark Garrett Anderson Centre.
