Premature babies and other newborns who need specialist care are set to benefit from a £335,000 pound donation to West Suffolk Hospital's neonatal unit.

The money was gifted to the hospital in a will, and earmarked specifically for use in the unit. A decision on what it will be spent on will be made over the next few months.

The donation comes after similar gift of £200,000 was made in 2011, which was used to improve the care offered to breast cancer patients by bringing assessment, imaging and diagnostic services into one place in the new integrated breast unit.
