Our Minor Injuries Unit at Felixstowe Hospital is provided by the Suffolk GP Federation.
Felixstowe IP11 7HJ
Telephone: 01473 350818
Patients with minor injuries need to make an appointment to see a member of staff. NHS guidelines governing urgent care facilities mean the unit, which is run by the Suffolk GP Federation, does not offer a walk-in service.
The unit’s opening hours are from 8am to 8pm, seven days a week.
Anyone in Felixstowe who suffers a minor injury should call NHS111, where an on-the-day appointment can be arranged for them at the MIU if appropriate.
Staff at any of the town’s four GP practices – Walton, The Grove, Howard House or Haven Health – can also book appointments for patients who phone or call in at their surgeries.
Care navigators at all four practices have undergone specialist training to ensure they are aware what constitutes a minor injury and is suitable for referral to the MIU. Patients may have to wait a short while during busy times. If they have a serious injury that requires immediate attention, they should call 999.
