Clinics & Services
The Midwife antenatal clinics are run on a Thursday. The doctors also offer a high level of care to our pregnant patients by providing antenatal care alongside the Community Midwifery Team. We also offer a GP home visit following the birth of your baby if you require one.
Our Care Coordinator, Sarah Rogers, works with patients over the age of 18 years who have a long term condition e.g. MS, COPD, Stroke and Parkinsons. They can advice and support patients with social/community/care issues and help to liaise multi agency. If you would like to speak to the care coordinator please contact Reception, or to self-refer to Sarah please call her on 07717 880 205.
Checks on your child's growth and development and immunisations are carried out by a doctor and Health Visitor. You will be invited to attend a 6 week developmental check and we will let you know when further checks are due.
