We have a team of midwives attached to each of the surgeries.
Care in pregnancy is provided by the practice in conjunction with the local Consultant Obstetricians and our local Midwives. Antenatal care will be carried out in the surgery during normal surgery or Ante-natal Clinic hours. (Please tell the Receptionist it is an ante-natal appointment as some may need extra time.)
We have a team of district nurses assigned to both surgeries. They provide specialised nursing support for house bound patients with nursing needs.
A health visitor is a registered nurse who has received training particularly related to babies, children and pregnant women. Their role is to provide families with children under five years old with support and advice around the general aspects of mental, physical and social wellbeing.
As part of the Healthy Child Programme, the health visitor will be offering an antenatal contact between 28 and 36 weeks either in a group session or as an individual. Also your child will be offered a health review at 8-12 months and again at 2 years.
