Our Passion, Your Care
Older People's Medicine

The Older People's Medicine Department at Ipswich Hospital has undergone a rapid expansion with four new consultants since February 2016. This has allowed us to expand our sphere of work and have a greater influence on the health and function of the patients we care for.

The department has a total of 10 consultants who – along with their teams of junior doctors, specialist nurses, nursing staff and therapists – provide a range of services specifically tailored for the older person.

“The nursing assistants, the nursing staff, doctors and consultants have all been very helpful and have made mum's stay in hospital as comfortable and pleasant as they possibly could. It is the first time in my experience that doctors and consultants have sought me out to talk to me about mum. They have listened to what I have said and taken my comments on board and between us we have decided on the best outcome for mum.”
