Ipswich Hospital bosses submit £100m rebuild plan

A £100m redevelopment plan of Ipswich Hospital’s “inefficient” site has been submitted.

The NHS trust wants to replace some of the older buildings.

Nick Hulme, hospital chief executive, said: “It’s like a museum of the NHS – we’re still providing care out of buildings that were built in 1897, so we need to make sure the site is fit for purpose.”

The plan is being considered by the NHS Trust Development Authority.

The redevelopment would keep the more modern buildings such as the Garrett Anderson Centre, which opened in 2008.

The Conservative MP for Ipswich, Ben Gummer, is campaigning for the re-development.
