The new facility was opened in the hope of giving Suffolk patients an additional 18,000 hours of NHS-only dental appointments per year. 

Ten fully-equipped dental surgery units in the University of Suffolk’s James Hehir building on Ipswich Waterfront launched at the end of last year. 

In 2021 the Duke came to Ipswich to officially open The Hold, also near Ipswich Waterfront.

He was shown treasures from the Suffolk Archives collections spanning 900 years of Suffolk’s history, including the oldest document - a Charter of King Henry I granting churches and property to the monks of Eye Priory from around 1119.
