Work's started on a £500,000 training unit at a hospital in Bury St Edmunds.

The clinical skills unit at the West Suffolk Hospital will be used to train the next generation of doctors, and will cater for up to seventy students at a time.

It will include a practical lab where students can learn skills such as taking blood samples, inserting catheters and stitching wounds.

It should be ready by early next year.
