Beccles Hospital is an intermediate care unit with in-patient facilities for those requiring medical care or therapy that does not require acute care in a general hospital.
The ward is staffed by registered nurses and healthcare assistants.
Physiotherapy and occupational therapy services are also available at Beccles Hospital, and we can provide access to speech and language therapists, social workers, mental health workers and palliative care teams, as required.
The hospital's twenty beds can provide longer-term care for patients from across Great Yarmouth and Waveney who require it due to medical and/or social/domestic complexities.
This may include:
Intravenous therapies or transfusions
Care after complex cancer treatment
We also have six beds which are supported by a consultant and nursing staff to provide specialist palliative care.
Simple steps to keep you safe during your hospital stay
You may be feeling anxious about being in hospital but keeping you safe and well is a priority for the staff looking after you.
There are also some simple things you can do to help keep yourself safe during your hospital stay, such as asking for help when needed, protecting yourself from slips and falls and helping to prevent blood clots.
A new video and leaflet has been launched by the NHS to provide tips for patients on keeping safe during a hospital stay.
