We work closely with other healthcare professionals such as District Nurses, Health Visitors and Midwives, who are not directly employed by the practice, but who work as part of the practice team delivering services to our patients.
You can contact the midwife through reception - please be aware that the midwife is not at the surgery every day. If you need advice or support, you can contact the Community Midwives Advice Line, which is open 9.30am-4.30pm Monday-Friday, on 01623 676170.
If you have an illness or incapacity that means that you need nursing care in your own home, your GP will refer you to the District Nurses. Patients who are likely to benefit from this service include the housebound, the elderly, people with a terminal illness, and those who have recently been discharged from hospital. District nurses provide wound care, palliative care, continence advice, health promotion advice and advice on co-ordinating care packages. The District Nurses can be contacted through the Single Point of Access (SPA) number 0300 4564951.
We also have access to specialised services within the community including physiotherapy and counselling services.
