Wheelchair users visiting loved ones


At Colchester and Ipswich hospitals we have porters who can help visitors who are wheelchair users to get from our main entrances to hospital wards to see their loved ones.

You can contact the main receptions 01206 747 474 / 01473 712 233 to book a porter when you have booked a ward visiting slot.

Or, another family member, friend or other carer can take and collect the wheelchair user from the main entrance to the ward entrance, and vice versa, but only the booked visitor can enter the ward and stay for the visit.

To help with COVID-19 safety, the family member, friend or other carer should not enter the ward and should wait outside of the building.
