PERFORMANCE: The CQC has judged Ipswich Hospital to be full compliant against its standards following an unannounced inspection in July.

Cath Gorman, associate director of nursing and quality said: “This is a day we have been waiting for and working towards for many months. The biggest credit of course, goes to our front line staff, which not only includes nurses, doctors, therapists, health care assistants, but also includes porters, support staff, estate colleagues, hostesses and ward cleaners – it is a real team effort.”
