Our Health Visitors are particularly interested in preventative care and offer advice on the health of mothers, babies and children. They can be contacted by ringing the community clerk on 0117 9082317 or 0117 9082385.
Our Midwives work with the doctors to provide antenatal and postnatal care for our patients. It is very important that you contact the practice as soon as you think you are pregnant to make a booking appointment with the midwife. Weekly antenatal clinics are held at the Primary Care Centre by appointment with the midwife. Pre-pregnancy information and advice can also be discussed with the midwife.
The midwives can be contacted by ringing the community clerk on 0117 3408470.
The community matron and her team specialise in caring for older people, whether they live in their own home or a care home. They aim to help patients manage their health problems and so prevent unnecessary admissions to hospital. If patients are admitted they liaise with the hospital team to ensure a faster, effective discharge.
