Ipswich Hospital will be hosting a stand at the Suffolk Show featuring a host of activities for visitors to keep healthy.

The diabetes team from the hospital will be on hand to carry out waist measurements and BMI calculations, while dementia and fertility experts will be available to answer questions.

Elsewhere, dieticians will be offering tips on healthy eating and malnutrition, and a special ‘baby-friendly’ area will be provided where mums can also breastfeed.

The hospital stand will also display information about career and training opportunities for those interested in working for the trust, as well as details about its five-year strategy called ‘Writing the Next Chapter’ which outlines its plans for the future following on from public consultations.

The stand is Blue 250 on the Flower Show Avenue, and will be in place on both days of the show – Wednesday, May 31 and Thursday, June 1.
