NHS schemes across the East of England to benefit from government funds have been announced by the East of England Strategic Health Authority (SHA).
Ipswich Hospital is getting state-of-the-art cleaning technology
They include a £9.6m scheme to cut waiting lists at the Norfolk Primary Care Trust (PCT) and £60,000 for pregnancy services in West Essex.
The project aims to help vulnerable pregnant woman in the county.
The funding also includes £500,000 to bring in state-of-the-art cleaning technology at Ipswich Hospital.
The scheme uses micro-fibres which can clean the hospital without the use of water.
New schemes this year, announced by the SHA, also include:
A new direct access scheme for echocardiography - using ultrasound to help detect heart problems in patients - at Princess Alexandra Hospital NHS Trust, Harlow
A new primary care centre for St Clement Surgery in Terrington, Norfolk, providing dramatically improved access to health services for the local community
An assessment and treatment centre for people with learning disabilities in Billericay, Essex, is to undergo a garden makeover
An scheme run by Suffolk PCT and their local GPs to support patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), aims to reduce hospital admission rates
A healthy living centre funded by Peterborough PCT which aims to transform care for people with long-term conditions such as diabetes
An investment of £300,000 of additional funding by East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust to help reduce hospital acquired infections such as MRSA.
The schemes will be funded with the extra £600m of cash, announced by the government earlier, on top of the NHS in the East's budget of about £7bn.
Earlier this week the SHA's director of finance Steve Clarke told BBC News that the amount of debt facing trusts had already been cut from £290m to £152m in 2006/2007.
Some of this outstanding debt may be cleared using part of the £600m.
Neil McKay, NHS East of England chief executive, said: "The additional funding in the NHS this year will continue to make a significant difference to the care that patients receive.
"It will further reduce waiting times, provide funding for more new and modern facilities and support the high standards of care provided by NHS staff.
"People in our region can be assured that this additional investment, of over half a billion pounds, will be directly translated into better care for them."
