The Breast Care Centre at Ipswich Hospital fully opened to patients at the end of January 2023, made possible thanks to a partnership between NHS funding and the Blossom Appeal, a fundraising appeal organised by Colchester & Ipswich Hospitals Charity.

We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported our fundraising appeal so generously since it's launch in 2017. The money has been used to create a welcoming, modern and tranquil environment which will continue to benefit our patients for years to come.

Although the centre is now open we still need your help and support to raise the final money needed to complete the finishing touches and to purchase additional equipment. Please do continue to support the appeal if you are able to.
