Beccles Medical Centre Minor Injury service (MI) provides treatment for less serious injuries less than 48 hours old, that would typically be dealt with by a hospital Accident and Emergency (A&E) department. The priority at A&E is to treat serious/life threatening conditions. The Minor Injuries service is staffed by experienced clinicians and patients will be assessed and treated as quickly as possible.
If you are unsure where to seek advice, please contact 111 who will be able to advise you.
If your condition cannot be dealt with at the Minor Injuries service, then you will be referred to the nearest Accident and Emergency department (A&E) or to another appropriate service.
The service offers treatment to anyone registered at Beccles Medical Centre with a minor injury and there is no age limit. It is a walk-in service for minor injuries only and you do not need to make an appointment.
Patients are seen in order of priority. During busy periods, waiting times will inevitably be longer but our aim is to see you as quickly as possible. MI is open from Monday-Friday from 08:30-18:00. Please report to the receptionist at the surgery.
Please note that the Minor Injuries service is not for minor illness. You should only attend for minor injures which are less than 48 hours old.
The Minor Injuries service cannot treat:
- Injuries more than 48 hours old
- Chest pain
- Breathing difficulties
- Major injuries or broken bones
- Problems usually dealt with by a GP, including minor illnesses
- Stomach pains
- Pregnancy Problems
- Drug overdoses or poisoning
- Alcohol related problems
- Mental health problems
- Gynaecological problems
- Conditions likely to require hospital admission
- Gynaecological problems
We offer minor surgery for certain procedures. If necessary your Doctor will refer you into this service, although the procedure may be carried out by another doctor and not your usual GP.
NHS Health Checks
The Practice offers health checks under the national NHS scheme to help prevent the onset of specific health problems.
Everyone between the ages of 40 – 74 who have not been diagnosed with heart disease, diabetes or kidney disease will be invited for a check once every five years.
Comprehensive travel advice and/or vaccinations can be provided at the Surgery by a member of our practice nursing team.
Please allow at least 12 weeks before departure, to ensure there is enough time for our nurses to assess your travel needs and give any immunisations required.
If you are travelling abroad, please make sure you contact us in plenty of time to arrange any vaccinations that may be necessary. To help the Travel Nurses assess your travel needs, it is important that they are in receipt of the assessment form before your appointment.
Alternatively, you may ask at reception for a travel questionnaire (one per traveller), which needs to be completed and returned to the surgery.
After completing a travel questionnaire, please allow 2-3 working days after submitting this, for it to be processed and for us to invite you in to the appropriate appointment.
