Welcome to Ipswich Hospital
Our Passion, Your Care
Patient Information

The Trust produces a wide range of leaflets, which provide information about its services and about the treatment you might receive in our clinics or during your stay in hospital.

Please note that not all our leaflets are on this website; we are continually reviewing and updating our leaflets and more will be added as they become available.  If you require further information, please contact your doctor or an appropriate health professional. Alternately, contact the Patient Advice and Liaison Service on Freephone 0800 328 7624.

The Patient Information Centre at Northumberland, Tyne and Wear NHS Trust provides access to a wide range of patient information leaflets - including many in languages other than English.

Ensuring high quality and easy to understand information

In addition to following strict criteria and guidelines for our patient information we also involve patients, carers and others in the development of our literature.

We are committed to ensuring we communicate well and appropriately with you and to help us in the production of our information we have a ‘Readers Panel’ which is representative of the community and regularly reviews new literature.

The purpose of the Readers Panel is to:

  • involve patients, their carers, family and the general public in the development and delivery of written patient information at The Ipswich Hospital NHS Trust;
  • develop an external and independent group of people who will provide a user view in the design and production of patient literature;
  • help ensure that a consistent approach to patient information is followed and a high quality of design and production is achieved; and
  • provide advice on all aspects of patient and public information.
