The Ipswich Hospital Foundation Wig Library is a service specifically for cancer patients who through treatment have lost their hair.
To help ease the emotions involved with hair loss, patients are able to borrow a wig of their choice for as long as they require. There are a wide range of wigs and turbans available and the friendly staff at the Library will work with you to ensure you are fitted with a wig that suits you.
