Community Midwives

The community midwives hold booking clinics, antenatal clinics, parent craft classes and do home visits as required. They are able to advise about normal pregnancy, childbirth, the postnatal period and deal with any related problems that may arise.

Health Visitors

The health visitors offer advice on all aspects of preventative healthcare and postnatal support including home visits, immunisation promotion and family education. They are involved with child health promotion and parent craft. They run weekly drop-in clinics for parents with children of pre-school age. Where appropriate, they will liaise with doctors, midwives, district nurses, social workers and other agencies. For further information on clinic times or to make an appointment, please contact either surgery.
