Healthcare Team

Community Midwives

The community midwife team run antenatal clinics at the surgery in conjunction with the doctors to provide complete antenatal care, thus reducing the number of visits to the hospital. After delivery, they visit to check that all is well with both the mother and baby, offering advice and guidance on breast-feeding and the general well-being and care of the baby.

Community Nurses

If the doctor has requested a district nurse to visit you for any reason they will refer you.  If you have any queries about this visit, please ring 01953 606201 and ask for the district nursing team.

District nurses assess, plan and manage the care of sick and disabled patients of all ages in the patient’s own home, general practices and residential nursing homes and also provide support for their carers.

Individual care is planned and advice on further help or services is given, including health education.  Anyone at home can self-refer to this service.  They have a close liaison with the hospital, GPs, local hospices and other specialised services.

They administer drugs, give injections, dress wounds, take blood samples and give personal care.

Health Visitors

The health visiting team provide families with children under five years old with support and advice around the general aspects of mental, physical and social well-being.
