Minor Injures unit changes live today


From today, 1st of April 2019, Felixstowe Minor Injures unit (MIU) will be changing to direct booking appointments only and will become a Minor injuries clinic (MIC).

EEAST will be able to book an appointment for any patients using a dedicated telephone number: 01473 350 818 (this is not to be given out and is for EEAST clinicians use only). If you are conveying the patient to the MIC, please call ahead first to book an appointment - there will be designated spaces for ambulances at the MIC.

For patients that self-present, they will need to call 111 and will complete a full pathways triage with a Health Advisor (HA). If appropriate then the HA will book an appointment for the patient.

If a patient arrives at the MIC without an appointment, they will be advised by signage to call 111 and make the HA aware they are outside the MIC. The patient will still have to complete a pathways assessment with the HA.

For the most up to date information, please refer to MiDoS. If you have any problems accessing the MiDoS system, please contact the team by email at MiDoS@eastamb.nhs.uk.
