answer text <p>In Central Suffolk and North Ipswich, Ipswich Hospital NHS Trust provides level 2 specialist neonatal care. If a baby requires level 3 neonatal care, which is the highest level of specialist care, the Trust contacts the nearest level 3 units to locate a suitable available cot. The regional level 3 units are at the Rosie Hospital in Cambridge and Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital in Norwich. However, if cots are not available at these hospitals, further units would be contacted to locate an available cot.</p><p> </p> more like this
