Port health services close for August bank holiday

Port health services at the ports of Felixstowe, Harwich and Ipswich are due to close for the August bank holiday.

Suffolk Coastal Port Health Authority (SCPHA) will close on Sunday, 27 August at 14:30 and resume normal operations on Tuesday, 28 August at 06:30.

Agents’ patience will be greatly appreciated as SCPHA’s team members work to provide health checks and clear consignments as quickly as possible following the bank holiday.

Agents are also asked to refrain from sending chaser emails, which could cause delays while resources are committed to answering them.

Any questions or queries about SCPHA’s work hours can be sent to
