The community midwife attends the antenatal clinic in our practice every Wednesday morning (09:30 - 12:00) and does home visits as necessary. The doctors also see antenatal patients during normal surgery hours. If you think you may be pregnant please see the doctor first at a routine appointment. Further antenatal care will then be arranged.
Postnatal examinations should be carried out six weeks after the birth. Appointments can either be arranged during the Thursday afternoon baby clinic at the same time as the six week baby check, or during normal surgery hours.
A well baby and immunisation clinic is held every Thursday afternoon between 14:00 and 15.30 by the doctor and health visitor. An appointment is necessary for immunisations with the nurse and for six-week baby checks with the doctor. No appointment is necessary to see the health visitor during this clinic.

We are now able to offer appointments with our Nurse Practitioner, who is an experienced Nurse who has undertaken further medical training that enables her to see patients with minor illnesses, infections, and injuries and also more long term things like asthma, contraception (but not coil fitting) and women’s health. She does not provide antenatal or mental health care. Do consider seeing our Nurse Practitioner as you may get an appointment sooner than if you wait for a Doctor.
