Community Midwives

The Community Midwife is available to provide help and advice throughout pregnancy. She sees all pregnant mums regularly during their pregnancies, both at antenatal clinics and also at Parentcraft courses; she will subsequently follow up after birth with visits at home.

Trying for Pregnancy? - Our midwife is available for counselling advice.

Community Nurses

The District Nurses are highly qualified nurses who have undergone further extensive training to enable them to specialise in providing high quality care to patients in the Community.

Home visits are made at the discretion of the District Nurse and are usually only made to patients who are unable to get out of the house, or have been assessed by the District Nurse as having a physical and/or medical problem which prevents them from attending the surgery.

The District Nurses also hold wound clinics and 'doppler' clinics.

Community Matron

We have a Community Matron in post with the surgery at present. The Matron 'case manages' some of our patients with specific health problems, helping to set up packages of care and to help patients avoid upsetting and sometimes unnecessary admissions to hospital. The Community Matron will visit patients in their own home where appropriate.

Health Visitors can be contacted directly by telephoning 01246 253025 between the hours of 09:00 – 10:00 and 16:00 – 17:00.
