Access guides for Ipswich Hospital

Staff at work on our busy Emergency Admissions Unit.

We aim to be as flexible as possible within the constraints of a working hospital. This information explains what you can expect from us during your visit, and what we would like from you in return.

General visiting hours are 11am – 8pm on most wards. Please note that on some wards the general visiting hours are different; please check with the ward before visiting or see the wards pages on this website.

Open visiting
Family carers
are welcome on our wards outside of general visiting times. The term family carer includes the parents or significant adults of children, partners of new mums and those with informal (unpaid) caring responsibilities for someone.
