The trusts that run Colchester and Ipswich hospitals are planning to come together as a single organisation this summer. The aim of the merger is to see patients at the right time, attract and retain the best staff, and provide the latest treatments locally. Joining together will help us do this.
As the largest NHS trust in the region, we will have the scale to save, strengthen and even grow some services. This won’t happen if we carry on as two medium sized separate organisations.
