Emotional and spiritual support

The emotional and spiritual wellbeing team is here to support patients and families facing illness, bereavement and to support the staff who care for them.

We are here to listen, offer advice and support, take referrals and signpost to other organisations where appropriate.

Our services are available to patients and families in both Ipswich, East Suffolk and Great Yarmouth and Waveney.

Watch the video below from Hanna McDowell, Head of Therapy, as she explains what the emotional wellbeing service can offer.
