Dr Dan Poulter MP today met with Nick Hulme, Chief Executive of the East Suffolk and North Essex NHS Foundation Trust, at Ipswich Hospital. He enjoyed a tour of the hospital estate and saw first-hand the excellent expansion of services and facilities.
During the tour, Dr Poulter visited the new paediatric unit where the consultant has been integral to the design of the new facilities, which provide an incredibly attractive and reassuring environment for families. Dr Poulter was very impressed with them.
The Trust has also put in place a brand-new breast care unit. It is the first of its kind in the country which aims for a very fast pace of treatment for people, often with ‘walk-in’ and same day appointments and often ‘next day’ biopsy results, diagnoses and treatments.
Dr Poulter looks forward to visiting again soon.
