District Nurses work in the community and see patients at the Surgeries, in their own homes and in residential accommodation.
They are experts at providing nursing care in the community, teaching self-care to patients and to their carers, promoting quality of life and maximising independence.
Health Visitors see their patients either at the Surgeries or at their own homes. They deal with patients up to 19 years of age, but their work is focussed primarily on children under the age of 5 years. Health Visitors have a wide range of experience in, and knowledge of, the care of children, the family and community health. Their Office telephone number is: 01977 465764
Midwives work alongside the Practice team of clinicians. They hold regular clinics at all of our surgeries and look after expectant mums throughout their pregnancies. If you think that you may be pregnant there is no need to see a doctor (unless you think that there may be a medical problem) - instead our reception staff will arrange for you see, or to make contact with, the midwives according to your needs.
