Health Visitors

The health visitors assist your doctor to carry out child health checks. They give immunisations to babies as well as advice on child growth and development. They are experts on infant feeding and carry out many screening procedures on children under five. Joint child development clinics are held by your doctor and health visitor.

Baby Vaccination clinic takes place on a Wednesday morning and this is by appointment only.

If your child is registered with the practice you will automatically receive an appointment to attend one of the clinics. If, however, these times do not suit, you may make a surgery appointment with your usual doctor.

District Nurses

The teams of district nurses attached to the practice provide an invaluable service of nursing care in the home. You may be referred to them by your doctor or hospital.


The midwife is a specially trained nurse who is trained to look after pregnant patients, to assist them in delivery of the baby and general care and help on breast feeding, once the baby is born.
You will meet your midwife either at the hospital clinic or GP surgery and she will assist with your care.

The district midwives are based in the local maternity hospital but work in the community. The district midwife can offer personalised care and, indeed, is available for a home delivery, if desired. All new mothers in the practice are visited daily by the district midwife after discharge from hospital and until the baby is 10 days old.

The Practice are currently experiencing an extremely high volume of calls as they deal with unprecedented demand on their service.

You can help with this by choosing an appropriate time and means to contact the Practice for your query i.e. use the answerphone or online service for script orders, only phone for results between 3-4.30 pm and choose a later time in the day to phone the practice for any general enquiries.

Your Practice team are dealing with a workload which far outstrips capacity, please be understanding of the daily challenges which they face to deliver services to you.
