Ipswich Hospital & Suffolk Family Carers

Dan had the opportunity to see the new Suffolk Family Carers' bus service at Ipswich hospital.

The wards caring for those patients with dementia use colour coded plates and glasses to help those patients recognise basic items making them feel safe and secure.

Despite the cost of tickets from Ipswich, reliability and speed of service have not improved over the years....
