Colchester & Ipswich Hospitals Charity

About Colchester & Ipswich Hospitals Charity

We are at the heart of healthcare for patients across East Suffolk and North Essex. With your generosity and enthusiasm we raise money to improve facilities, fund new equipment and services, support staff development and initiate local medical research at The East Suffolk and North Essex NHS Foundation Trust.

Our vision for a centralised complex to care for everyone regardless of cancer type, severity or prognosis is fast becoming a reality. The new chemotherapy and haematology suite, recently named The Collingwood Centre, is now under construction. Situated above the radiotherapy centre, it will bring all cancer services together under one roof for the first time and is due for completion by winter 2019.

To complete our holistic approach, a unique Wellbeing Centre will provide complementary therapies, counselling, advice and support for patients and their loved ones. We are delighted that construction of the Wellbeing Centre started in August.

The Cancer Centre Campaign is not just bricks and mortar. We know people don’t want to come to hospital, but we do want their experience to be as good as it possibly can. Both centres will offer an environment which is welcoming and comfortable. To achieve this ultimate goal, the fundraising continues and we thank you for taking us one step closer to it.

The Cancer Centre Campaign is one of our appeals and by supporting Art Auction, you will be fundraising for this life changing project.
