First-of-its-kind pilot takes expert help into patients’ own homes

Patients who have had a suspected stroke can now be assessed by a specialist consultant in the comfort of their own home following the launch of a first-of-its-kind pilot which is using technology to improve care.

The pioneering initiative allows specially-trained paramedics from the East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust (EEAST) to use a secure video conferencing app to liaise with an expert stroke consultant from Ipswich Hospital in cases where a diagnosis is not clear.

Extra NHS money to better support our communities

The drive to prevent ill health and support our local communities through better joined-up health and social care services has been given a major cash boost.

Almost £5 million is being given to 46 individual projects run by voluntary, community and public sector organisations across east and west Suffolk.

It's flu vaccination season - the time to think about your winter health
Even though we’ve just said goodbye to the summer holidays, now is the time to start thinking about protecting your health over winter with a flu vaccination.

Most GP practices across east and west Suffolk will soon be holding flu vaccination clinics for their registered patients - and people in at-risk groups are being encouraged to attend. Many pharmacies also provide NHS flu vaccinations for those in at-risk groups aged 18+.
Latest local health newsletters are published
The latest newsletters from NHS Ipswich and East Suffolk and NHS West Suffolk clinical commissioning groups have just been published.

Highlights include:

- Launch of new film which highlights how those living with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes could benefit from signing-up to a free NHS My Diabetes course
Meetings in public - NHS Ipswich and East Suffolk Clinical Commissioning Group

A meeting in public of the Governing Body of NHS Ipswich and East Suffolk Clinical Commissioning Group will take place on Tuesday September 25 from 9.00 a.m. Come along to this meeting to learn more about health services in the Ipswich and east Suffolk area. 

A meeting in public of the Primary Care Commissioning Committee for east and west Suffolk will take place on Tuesday September 25 from 2.00 p.m. This committee is the decision-making group for the management of primary care (GP practices). Members of the public are welcome to come along and listen to the business of the meeting and ask questions at the end.
