Community Midwives

The practice has attached community midwives who provide ante-natal and post-natal care for patients. The midwife is normally the first contact for patients who become pregnant and they will co-ordinate care up to and following birth. The doctors will provide support when special care is required or a need to refer to hospital. The delivery of ante-natal and post-natal care is called shared care between your surgery and the hospital. The health visitor will offer support and advice following birth.

Community Nurses

The Community Nursing Team provide a comprehensive care package to housebound patients, chronic disease management, wound care and treatment. They also provide advice to patients recently discharged from hospital, the terminally ill and vist pateints over 75years to carry out health checks.

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.
