Beccles Hospital is an intermediate care unit with in-patient facilities for those requiring medical care or therapy that do not require acute care in a general hospital.
The ward is staffed by registered nurses and health care 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 20-beds can provide longer term care for patients from across Great Yarmouth and Waveney who need longer term care due to medical and/or social/domestic complexities. This may include:
- intravenous therapies or transfusions
- care after complex cancer treatment
- short term rehabilitation
We also have six beds which are supported by a consultant and nursing staff to give specialist palliative care.
