NHS England is commissioning a modern data service from the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) on behalf of the entire health and social care system. Known as care.data, this programme will build on existing data services and expand them to provide linked data, that will eventually cover all care settings, both in and outside of hospital.

Medical Students & Registrars
Beccles Medical Centre is a teaching and training practice. The practice is involved in teaching years 2, 3, 4 and 5 medical students from the University of East Anglia. Dr G Collins is a Senior Honourary lecturer at UEA and leads the teaching of medical students with the involvement of the other GPs at the practice. You will be informed if a medical student is present at a clinic and if you do not wish the student to be present during your consultation, please inform the reception staff.
As a training practice, the surgery is registered to have GP Registrars who operate under the guidance of Dr C Wiggins. Video recordings of consultations are often carried out for training purposes and remain confidential. All recordings will be deleted the next day and consent forms will be offered when needed.
