Community Midwives

The midwives look after our mothers-to-be and arrange all antenatal care. They run Antenatal clinics at the surgery on Wednesdays most weeks.

Community Nurses

The nurses are responsible for the care of those patients who are unable to access the surgery due to their medical condition – the housebound and those recently discharged from hospital that need further care at home. The district nurse team leader is Kim Vickary. They are co-located in the surgery and can be contacted via the surgery or directly on 01326-430074/5

Health Visitors

A health visitor is a registered nurse who has received training particularly related to babies, children and pregnant women. Their role is to provide families with children under five years old with support and advice around the general aspects of mental, physical and social wellbeing.

They hold Child Health Surveillance clinics on Wednesday afternoon most weeks. They can be contacted direct on 01326- 430050

Attached Staff

Discharge Liaison Nurse (DLN)

This service is designed to look after patients discharged from hospital. Many come out confused about new medicines, unsure about their normal medication, unsure about any follow up requirements or unable to cope alone at home. The DLN is tasked to contact the patient and ensure that all these issues have been addressed. She works closely with the district nurses, Social Services and community matron all of whom may have some input into the patient’s care.
