The Practice is part of a research cluster and we are involved in several different projects throughout the year.
This care is shared with the hospital but outlined below is information of how we can help you at this practice:
Shared care with hospital ante-natal department. The GP provides post natal care, six week check-up and contraceptive advice. Queries, questions or worries are dealt with by the GP or nurse.
Any queries, questions or worries regarding your ante-natal care can also be addressed by the Practice Nurse, including keeping a check on your blood pressure recording between visits to the mid-wife. The same applies to post-natal questions and the nurse can also give you advice on feeding, contraception and mother/baby well-being.
The staff at the hospital clinics provides ante-natal care, blood tests, scans, blood pressure recordings, discussion regarding method of delivery and advice about complications in pregnancy.
The Community Midwife shares ante-natal care with the hospital.
After you are discharged from hospital, the Health Visitor at your local mother/baby clinic will give advice on child health and mother/baby well-being.
The Community Nurse cares for the long-term illnesses and house-bound patients in their homes and referrals can be made through the surgery.
